This French-language video is a complete look at what the Louvre is like today as well as how it got that way from its very different beginnings. Far from being conceived as an art museum, The Louvre has served in many different capacities over the centuries and it has been added to over the years to change its look and function. The addition of the glass pyramid has struck up controversy in France and beyond as some find it the perfect modern addition and others find it to be a garish, too-modern addition to the building. In this 63-minute video, find out about the architecture of the building as well as how it developed over time. Through the old photos and lithographs of the building, you will see how it progressed from a historical standpoint as well as an architectural one.
