I.M. Pei

I.M. Pei (1917 – 2019) was a Chinese-American architect renowned for his innovative and elegant designs that fused modern architectural principles with classical elements. Throughout his distinguished career, Pei worked on numerous high-profile projects, such as the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston, the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the iconic glass pyramid entrance of the Louvre Museum in Paris. Geometric forms, clean lines, and the use of natural light characterized Pei’s architectural style. He often drew inspiration from various cultures and incorporated local materials and traditional elements into his designs.
