The Louvre (as the Musee du Louvre is popularly called), is the world's most visited, and among the largest museums in the world.The glass roofs adorning it are a shimmering reminder of the fact that it is one of Paris' best-known landmarks.Spanning a whopping area of 6,52,300 sq.ft. It showcases almost 35,000 objects to 15000 visitors every day and 8 million visitors every year.

 

The Department of Islamic Art is the latest among the eight curatorial departments in the Musee du Louvre. It consists of ground-and lower-ground-level interior spaces topped by a golden, undulating glass roof and fabricated from almost 9,000 steel tubes to form an interior web. The galleries are a work of art of architects Mario Bellini and Rudy Ricciotti who won an international competition to create them.

 

Saint-Gobain makes its presence felt on the glass roofs of Louvre's magic carpet. Glass Solutions supplied about 2,500 square meters of glass for the Department of Islamic Art located in the Visconti Courtyard, one of the museum’s internal courtyards. The 2,000 panels of CLIMAPLUS ULTRA N enhanced thermal insulation, double-glazing used for the glass roof were manufactured to order by Flachglaswerk Radeburg in Germany. Like a magic carpet, the elegant glass and metal structure covers the courtyard, creating a new exhibition space.

 

The Louvre, is no doubt, among the finest pieces of architecture of not just our times, but also of an era gone by. As it stands testimonial of the amalgamation of medieval and modern construction, its scintillating glass roof is yet another evidence of the timeless material that is glass...
