Trivia: Which architect designed the controversial glass pyramid at the Louvre?
Leonardo da Vinci
Correct Answer: I.M. Pei
So why is this answer correct? : French President François Mitterand’s gamble to restore the Louvre paid off in a big way — though it wasn’t without controversy. Unveiled in 1989, architect I.M. Pei added the glass pyramids (there are actually five total) which were initially met with criticism. However, they eventually became instrumental in revitalizing the museum, which now welcomes more than 10 million visitors each year.
