I.M. Pei in Paris

The Louvre Pyramids, by architect I.M. Pei

On a recent trip to Paris, I looked at the works of American Architects. One of the finest examples of work that I found was I.M. Pei's Louvre Pyramids. They are great pieces of modern architecture that achieve success in function and form. Contrastingly they sit within the courtyard of the majestic palace, yet perfectly the two architectural styles work together. The artwork inside the museum is great, but if for no other reason, go see the architecture! For more information on the museum, click here.
