From Palace Pop Art to Golden Undulated Galleries

 - Sep 25, 2012
It is highly de riguer in the fields of art and architecture to create contrast with juxtaposing spaces.

The idea of having an ultra-modern aesthetic paralleled with old world nostalgia is prominent with creative professionals. Perhaps the most famed is the famed Louvre glass pyramids. These have been subject to debate with one side adoring the juxtaposing modern constructions while the opposition thinks them a scar on the Parisian landmark.

A large amount of varied structures and installations have followed suit to recreate this notion of contrasting aesthetics. For instance, pop-art installations by Takashi Murakami that were showcased at the Versailles Castle played with a fusion of history and modernism. Most recently, the newest Islamic Art gallery is ultra-modern in its undulating facade. These juxtaposing spaces are a statement on the idea of harmonizing history with the future.
