Aileen Reed (au). The architect I.M. Pei made international headlines with the controversial Grand Louvre project. The focus of the objections was the glass pyramid that Pei proposed to build in the Louvre courtyard. And yet the formal opening in 1989 was a triumph. Born in China in 1917, Pei moved to the U.S. at the age of 18, & his early works were all American. His breakthrough to national fame came with the Kennedy Lib. Since then Pei has designed some of the 20th cent. most elegant & powerful buildings. Here is an intro. to one of the world’s most successful contemporary architects, whose work is a unique blend of Chinese classicism & Amer. modernism. The text discusses Pei’s approach to arch. & sets each major commission in its context. 80+ full-color photos.
