Louvre Museum, Department of Islamic Arts
January 20, 2012

Louvre Department of Islamic Arts Rudy Ricciotti Mario BelliniAfter the 80s enlargement planned by I.M. Pei, the Louvre Museum in Paris continues to expand and be renewed thanks to a new contemporary architectural work.
As a matter of fact in the Summer of 2012, the Department of Islamic Arts opens in the Cour Visconti. Two new exhibition floors have been built to the plans of 2005 competition winners Rudy Ricciotti and Mario Bellini. The two-storey wing will be covered with a glass "veil", wrapped in a gold metal mesh. A perfect background for the exhibits: different from the Museum façades, yet elegantly integrated with them.
