"I. M. Pei is one of the twentieth century's most celebrated architects, a designer whose sense of form and light has ensured his buildings an iconic status for their innovation and beauty. In this set of interviews with Gero von Boehm, Pei explains in his own words how his fascination with the art of architecture culminated in a career and an oeuvre almost unparalleled in modern building." "This volume presents this master architect in a profoundly personal manner, touching on the influences he gathered in the gardens and cities of his native China, his studies under the great masters of modernism at America's most prestigious universities, and his ascent to the top of his profession in the United States and internationally. Complete with a colorplate section showing Pei's works, a selection of his drawings, and a catalog of his oeuvre, this volume offers a view of a truly extraordinary man. Conversations with I.M. Pei: Light is the Key is as valuable a resource for the general reader as it is for architects and students."--Jacket

I.M. Pei : complete works by Philip Jodidio( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"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"--
