PBS: American Masters – I. M. Pei: Building China Modern

Yesterday, I. M. Pei was profiled as he returned to China in order to design a modern museum to house the antiquities of Suzhou — where he grew up — in an episode of PBS’s series, American Masters. There are many of Pei’s designs I’ve seen in person, including the art museum at Cornell University and the Louvre Pyramid, but my all-time favorite design (probably of any modern building), is the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong – especially seeing it at night from the Hong Kong harbor.

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
