Pyramide du Louvre, Paris
Commissioned by the President of France François Mitterrand in 1984, it was designed by the architect I. M. Pei
One of Paris's major tourist sites Pyramide du Louvre is a large glass and metal pyramid, surrounded by three smaller pyramids, in the main courtyard of the Louvre Palace. The large pyramid serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum.
Only the French could combine modern and classical architecture with such finesse. Top marks to the builders too, it all seems perfectly symmetrical.
