Caption: Louvre Pyramid, Paris, France, at dusk. This structure of glass and steel is the entrance to the Louvre art museum. The buildings surrounding the Court of Napoleon are part of the Louvre Palace, home to the French royal family in the 18th century. The pyramids (several smaller ones were also built) were designed by the American architect I. M. Pei, and built between 1985 and 1989. The main pyramid rises 21 metres above the ground, and provides access to underground galleries. The smaller pyramids (far left and far right) act as skylights, allowing the underground galleries to be lit by daylight. Photographed in 2012.
