The concept of the Louvre has been designed to resemble a massive silver dome that appears to float over the whole city when in fact weighing approximately 7,500 tons, the equivalent of the Eiffel Tower’s weight.

 

Its architect Jean Nouvel took inspiration from Arabian architecture before designing the dome that comprises of 7,850 stars, splattered in different in sizes and angles across 8 layers. As the sun traverses across the horizon, its rays filter through these layers to create palm tree-shaped shadows in the museum interiors.
