Art and Architecture

I’m a fan of most architecture, mostly the older kind. The pyramid at the Louvre has grown on me. For a month, an art installation is on it, sort of interesting.

Installation almost complete.

From the front.

Finished but I was there in the late afternoon and couldn’t get a photo without people in front of it.

Turn around and here is this architecture, a small Arch de Triomphe. Those Romans were so good at architecture which was copied here.

One thought to “Art and Architecture”

  1. I love the old architecture in Europe in general and France in particular–from medieval, half-timbered houses to Renaissance chateaux to Belle Epoque maisons de maItre. Yet, I also like good modern architecture. Jean Nouvel’s Institute du Monde Arabe. Le Corbusier. And the Pyramid of the Louvre. It’s silly to try to copy a previous style. The Pyramid is simple and elegant without being another boring glass block.
