Department of Islamic Arts, Louvre by Mario Bellini Architects

The New department of Islamic art has been unveiled in Paris. Designed by Mario Bellini Architects, the subterranean building features a suspended undulating glass roof.

It was interesting to have seen it in construction on my recent trip to Paris, and now it has been completed. The roof is extravagant and well detailed, mirroring the pyramid in the other courtyard.
