Über diesen Titel


This revised edition of the first full-length study of I.M. Pei, one of the world's greatest architects, includes a chapter on Pei's work since 1990, when he established a new relationship with his firm that enabled him to pursue more small scale, personal commissions. Illustrated from the rich archives of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, this book charts Pei's progress from his birth in China in 1917 through every milestone in his career to his pre-eminent position today. The author, noted architecture critic Carter Wiseman, has supplemented extensive and meticulous research with many hours of conversation with Pei, his family, his associates and his clients. Wiseman focuses his text on the buildings of special relevance to Pei's career, and, whether discussing Pei's pyramid for the Louvre, the Kennedy Library or the Myerson Symphony Center, he carefully considers the project's architectural, sociological and personal dimensions. One sees how Pei's artistic vision has emerged, how he has deftly met the demands of each new situation and client, and how his charismatic personality has affected events. Scores of colour photographs present Pei's buildings in all their variety, from the urban grandeur of the Dallas City Hall to the daring innovation of the Bank of China skyscraper. Dozens of revealing drawings, plans and models as well as personal and documentary photographs make this volume the only comprehensive visual record of Pei's work.
