At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The glass pyramid.

Built in March 1989 in the middle of the Napoléon Courtyard at the Louvre Museum, the Louvre Pyramid designed by architect Ieoh Ming Pei was at first the subject of much controversy, dividing opinions and sparking a media debate in the French capital because of its stark modernity in contrast to the antique palace surrounding it.
The glass pyramid was conceived as part of a project set in motion by the French President François Mitterrand in the early 80s. After the inital uproar it was quickly accepted and even loved by Parisians, becoming an integral part of the architectural landscape of the city, sitting on the axis running from the Louvre through the place de la Concorde up the Champs-Elysées and to the Grand Arche at la Defense.
The pyramid played a central role in the novel The Da Vinci Code and it continues to fastinate visitors to the city.

Access to the museum is via the Pyramid: visitors descend by escalator into its luminous space where the ticket office and exhibition spaces are located, with access to the auditorium and the Carrousel du Louvre shopping mall.
