4. The Louvre enormous building, constructed around 1200 as a fortress and rebuilt in the mid-16th century for use as a royal palace, began its career as a public museum in 1793. As part of Mitterand's grands projets, the Louvre was revamped in the 1980s with the addition of a 21-metre glass pyramid entrance. Initially deemed a failure, the new design has since won over those who regard consistency as inexcusably boring.(www.monument-paris.com/**louvre**.htm) (SW)external image louvre.gif
