ABOUT THE ART
Pyramide du Louvre by photographer Claire McNeil
The large glass and metal pyramid at the entrance of the Louvre Museum in Paris is the subject of this design.
Taken from inside the construction looking up at the slightly cloudy sky. The pyramid has always been surrounded with controversy, those that felt the futuristic look was not in keeping with the classical architecture of the museum itself.
In my opinion, the proximity of the modern glass-and-steel entrance pyramid to the classical stone architecture of Louvre itself shows that the past and present, in many ways, influence each other: design is built upon experience, and our attitudes to history are coloured - and perpetually shifting - by our everyday lives in the moment.
