Louvre Paris Extension – Background

This project is an initiative on the part of the office of Carl Fredrik Svenstedt Architect for a site that is today untreated and for which a (small) lobby has proposed rebuilding the historical wing as a symbol of French “identity”. The original building was however destroyed by the nascent French Republic in 1871 and 1884, as a symbol of royal and imperial power — dictatorship — from the revolutionaries point of view.

Our idea is to make a very public and therefore “democratic” building, of our time, while respecting the existing site and views, but also creating new ones from several public viewing areas.

So far the project has received positive but unofficial interest from some decision makers, although this kind of project is difficult, especially around election time. Our hope is that the temporary phase, a programmed and occupiable built “outline” of the project, could generate enthusiasm and informed public debate. This seems reasonable, especially at a time of popular large scale installations in Paris by the likes of Anish Kapoor.
