“In 1983, when President François Mitterrand commissioned I. M. Pei to create a new entrance to the Louvre, Mitterrand was following in the footsteps of French kings. During it’s many incarnations—former defence tower, repository of crown treasures, royal residency, artist commune, first royal library, Renaissance Palace, home to Leonardo’s Mona Lisa, and mega-museum extraordinaire—the Louvre evolved with the times and the whims of its leaders.”
