Favourite Place: The I.M. Pei pyramid entrance to the Louvre museum in Paris. I just love the way in which the museum had the bravery to run with a bold modernist statement within the context of such an historical environment. The spaces around the pyramid are magical, and the volumes with are exquisite.
