Im Pei - Living Legends

I. M. Pei

Awarded: April 2000
(b. April 26, 1917)

One of the most talented and successful American architects of the post-war period, I. M. Pei’s architectural forms are beautifully wedded to the context of their sites as exemplified in his design for the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. He has been awarded almost every major architectural prize, including the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects and the Pritzger Prize.
