Louvre-large

Single shot: Louvre

Pyramide du Louvre. It’s entirely out of place, yet it fits in perfectly.

You’d think that a giant pyramid made out of glass and steel would be the last thing that would fit in with a building from the late 18th century. Yet the two sit in perfect harmony. The fact that it serves a function — alleviating the pressure on the old entrance, while simultaneously creating a centre point for visitors to explore the museum — just makes it all the more amazing.
