• A modern classic: The Pyramids of the Louvre

    Who dares mess with a classic? How can you modernize the very symbol of historicity? For the Louvre Museum in Paris, is not just the repository of some of the world's most valued treasures - it is *itself* one of the world's treasures. *Who would dare botox Audrey Hepburn?* The French did. There were practical reasons, as usual. Too many people want to visit the Louvre in the era of global super-museums increasingly catering to mass culture (can you guess how many people crave a selfie in front of the Mona Lisa? Millions? Billions?) So the Louvre had to expand. Building a tower like the MOMA in Manhattan was out of the question. The only way to go was underground. But how do you bring natural light underground?

"Le Louvre" (The Louvre Museum) is a very beautiful song sung originally by Diana Est, an Italian singer who released it in 1983. In 2004 Giorgio Prezioso released a Dance version in collaboration with his brother Andrea Prezioso and Alessandro Moschini (with the alias Marvin) creating a Dance DJ trio, "Prezioso Ft. Marvin". This song is very curious... It alludes to an immaginary but at the same time "real" World where famous paintings jealously exhibited in The Louvre Museum including the Gioconda (Mona Lisa, portrait painted by Leonardo da Vinci, notable Italian Renaissance polymath) get life and go out of museums... It's symbolized by the "Nobles" (the famous people represented in the static portraits) who wants to join the "Bistrots", circles of intellectuals, like the Coffeehouses in Great Britain during the Victorian Age (19th century), artists joined to share ideas and works. It symbolizes the spreading of the true culture overthrowing the "Modern Culture" which is sinfull of "Modernity", seen as "Old Modernity" which has already become past and old as time, and depressed because is rooted in the "Culture of Banalities" and lacks of Originality. Every time I listen to this song, I cry and feel free and very inspired to do something very innovative and original! Follow me singing... Fuori dai Musei... Nuovi Amici miei... Out of Museums... New people to meet... Si distruggerà... La Civiltà delle Banalità! We'll overthrow the Culture of Banalities! Su seguitemi... Esibitevi... And now, follow me... Show yourself (exhibit) Altra moda va... Vincerà! Chi si distinguerà! Who will distinguish oneself... Will win (will stand out) Per molti secoli... Quei Nobili, sono rimasti esposti, sempre immobili For many centuries...

Pei - (1989) - Grand LOUVRE - Paris, France Phase 1 - completed 1989 For eight centuries the Louvre has stood as a unique national monument, central to the people and spirit of France. In 1983, President François Mitterrand requested that it be modernized, expanded and better integrated with the city — all without compromising the integrity of the historic building. The challenge was magnified by the fact that the Louvre was originally constructed, and used for most of its life, as a royal palace; it was fundamentally ill-suited to serve as a museum. The two-phase solution involved the reorganization of the long linear building into a compact U-shaped museum around a focal courtyard. A centrally located glass pyramid forms the new main entrance and provides direct access to galleries in each of the museum's three wings. Critically, the pyramid also serves as a skylight for a very large expansion building constructed under the courtyard to provide all the public amenities and technical support required in a modern museum. Corollary objectives for improved urban integration led to the transformation of surface parking into a three-hectare fountain plaza. Closed passages through the building were opened as public rights of way, underground services and parking relieved congestion, and a 55,000m2 mixed-use complex, supplementary but independent of the museum, was designed to help finance the project and reinvigorate the heart of Paris. The half-mile-long Louvre, previously an obstacle to circulation, thus became a vital gathering place and bridge to the surrounding city. Phase 2 - Completed 1993 Conversion of the Richelieu Wing from offices of the Ministry of Finance into exhibition space constitutes the critical second stage of the Grand Louvre. Only by incorporating this nineteenth-century wing could the project goals be fully realized. Unlike Phase I, which involved the construction of a new underground building, Phase II required the creation of new space within an historic shell. Work included the cleaning and restoration of façades and exterior sculpture, conversion of three interior courtyards (previously staff parking lots) into skylit sculpture courts, and demolition of 12 acres of dingy government offices compressed into 6+ floors. With the exception of several historic rooms, the interior was totally rebuilt to accord with the three-level palace exterior. Sculpture was installed on the bottom level for maximum support, Decorative Arts in the middle, and at the top, painting galleries with innovative skylights designed for optimal viewing of the collection. A grand escalator court facilitates access to all levels, merging old and new and better equipping the Louvre for its preeminent role as a modern museum. Beyond conversion of the Richelieu Wing, Phase II included the underground mixed-use complex known as the Carrousel du Louvre, the Pyramide Inversée that brings light into its center, the connected underground parking garage, and a series of related surface projects designed to actively reclaim the Louvre as a vital pedestrian precinct in the heart of Paris. .

I started posting outfit of the day (#OOTD) photos on Instagram about two years ago when I was living in Dallas, Texas for work. I loved taking photos and posting on Instagram so much that I decided to expand and try out YouTube and blogging as well. When I was living in the city, my personal style was a bit more streetwear 90's grunge, but now that I live in Southern California and closer to the ocean, my style has become a lot more cozy and comfortable with a lot of bohemian influences. If I had to describe my fashion sense on my blog, Instagram aesthetic, and YouTube editing style now, I'd probably describe it as modern bohemian with an edge, since I tend to wear and do things that might be considered unconventional to others. I'm not sure if that is true, but since I've moved back to California, I just find that I gravitate to what is easiest and effortless for me while living near the beach where it always feels like summer. Thank you so much for stopping by my YouTube channel and I hope that you enjoy what you'll find here! I love fashion, beauty (especially hair styling and bohemian braids), DIY projects and how to videos, making travel diaries of all the places that I'm lucky enough to visit, and sharing my (for lack of a better term) "modern bohemian" lifestyle.

The adjoining domed Cathedral of the Invalids is a masterpiece of Baroque Classicism, and it contains the remains of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Cathedral Of Notre Dame, a Gothic masterpiece, that is also referred to as the 'Mother Church of the Nation', was built on the foundations of a Roman temple and took almost 200 years to build. Kings, monsters and grotesque figures populate its facades, and bizarre gargoyle-like creatures peer down from above. This is where the kings and queens of France were crowned and where Napoleon crowned himself! Built at the end of the 19th century as a symbol of national revival, Montmartre's Basilique du Sacre-Coeur has the appearance of a white, fairy-tale palace and boasts 237 steps that lead up to its main entrance. Similar to the Marcus Cathedral in Venice and the Saint Front in southwest France, it was built in Byzantine style with 5 domes. Its interior is richly decorated throughout with reliefs, paintings and mosaics that are overshadowed by its exquisite architecture. This is still one of the world's most beautiful cities. First discovered by the Celts, then used strategically by the Romans, Paris is a city of passion and history that contains more than its fair share of irresistible charm!
