Jacques Androuet II du Cerceau, a French architect, the son of Jean Baptiste, (ca 1556–1614), also worked in cooperation with Louis Métezeau designing the Petite Galerie and the Grande Galerie (1595–1608) that extended along the bank of the Seine as part of Henri IV's grand project to link the Louvre to the Tuileries. The project was abruptly halted after the assassination of the king in 1610, but the Pavilion des Tuileries (1595) that formed the junction was completed. Renamed the Pavillon de Flore in the reign of Louis XIV, and greatly altered, it is the only element of the Tuileries that survives.
