Louvre Pyramid

Recommended
This glass pyramid designed by Ieoh Ming Pei is in striking contrast to the exuberant façades of the old palace. Erected in the Cour Napoleon, this glass and steel structure, surrounded by pools and fountains, blends effortlessly into the landscape of the courtyard. The pyramid's audacious design can be fully appreciated from the Hall Napoleon below. At night, the majestic facades of the Louvre are reflected in the rippled surface of the pools around the pyramid.
