Abstract:

"When I.M. Pei - one of the world's most celebrated architects and a master of light, space, and geometry - was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1983, the jury said he had "given this century some of its most beautiful interior spaces and exterior forms." I.M. Pei: Complete Works attests to this statement by showcasing Pei's transcendent, sculptural forms from more than 50 years of work, using his best known and widely admired Louvre project as a focal point." "Often working with a palette of stone, concrete, glass, and steel, Pei has taken his vision of modern architecture across the globe with commissions in locations as diverse as Qatar, China, Luxembourg, Japan, and Germany. Meanwhile, major projects such as the JFK Library in Boston and the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. have made him a household name in the United States. This volume honors Pei's tremendous influence by exclusively discussing the projects that he - rather than any of his partners - had direct, personal interest in. Insightful texts by renowned writers Philip Jodidio, Janet Adams Strong, and Carter Wiseman insure that this first-ever monographic study of the master architect will be an invaluable source for years to come."--Jacket.
