I. M. Pei

I. M. Pei's Place Ville-Marie in Montreal
Ieoh Ming Pei (貝聿銘 pinyin bei4 yu4 ming2) is a Chinese architect born in Canton, China on April 26, 1917.

Pei, the last "master" of high modernist[?] architecture, has been described as an architect who focuses on abstract form. He prefers materials such as stone, concrete, glass, and steel.

While Pei is one of the most successful 20th century architects in the world, with numerous landmark buildings and extensions to his name, his work has had little influence on architectural theory.
