Today, we lost an architectural legend, famed architect I.M. Pei, known famously for designing the Louvre Pyramid. He passed away at the age of 102. Rest In Peace Mr. Pei. I remember my first time visiting the Louvre Pyramid back in December 1998. I didn’t fully comprehend the awe-inspiring space until I was standing directly beneath the apex in the subterranean lobby. It was truly one of the most transformative experiences in my life as a designer. It is so daring and yet subtle; the juxtaposition of the mid 16th century French Renaissance style building and the modern glass pyramid is one of the finest examples of urban planning. It’s been nearly 16 years since we visited the Louvre or anywhere in Europe for that matter. We are looking forward to visiting Paris next month. #impei#louvre#louvremuseum#louvrepyramid#paris#architecture#museumspaces#architecturephotography#notmyphoto

After 3 days of full penetration welds onsite, we are getting ready to remove the temporary moment frame supporting the landing. Curious to see how much the cantilevered steel staircase will deflect... #steel#steelconstruction#steelstairs#welding#cantileveredstaircase#architecture#construction#structuralengineering#design#woodframe#crane
