I.M. Pei – Building China Modern

Called the most important living modern architect, I.M. Pei has defined the landscapes of some of the world’s greatest cities. A monumental figure in his field and a laureate of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize, Pei is the senior statesman of modernism and the last surviving link to such great architects as Corbusier, Gropius and Mies van der Rohe. Entering into the twilight of his career and well into his eighties, Pei returns to his ancestral home of Suzhou, China to work on his most personal project to date. He is commissioned to build a modern museum in the city’s oldest neighborhood, populated by classical structures from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. For the architect who placed the pyramid at the Louvre, the test to integrate the new with the old is familiar but still difficult. His enormous task is to help advance China architecturally without compromising its heritage. Directed by Anne Makepeace. Produced by Eugene B. Shirley Jr.
