IM Pei

Post by DaveInSeattle » Thu May 16, 2019 5:15 pm

Yep...
I. M. Pei, the China-born American architect who began his long career working for a New York real-estate developer and ended it as one of the most revered architects in the world, has died. He was 102.

His son Li Chung Pei said on Thursday that his father had died overnight.

Mr. Pei was probably best known for designing the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the glass pyramid that serves as an entry for the Louvre in Paris.

He was no Eero Saarinen, but still a badass.

He was the writer.

I was just looking over I.M. Pei's buildings, and while the Louvre addition is cool, in my opinion, a lot of his major projects are pretty ugly.
