I.M. Pei Dies

I.M. Pei Dies

Ieoh Ming Pei was born in China in 1917. He formed I M Pei & Associates in 1958.

The metropolitan Boston area (including Cambridge) counts seven buildings attributed to Pei as principal designer (see below list).

If we add Harbor Towers (attributed to Henry Cobb) and the Christian Science Monitor building (attributed to Araldo Cossutta) as firm projects then we expand the conversation.

Pei received a bachelor’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1940

Later he gained a master’s from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, Boston, MA, USA, in 1946.

Boston’s leading architect, David P. Manfredi, the CEO & Founding Principal of Elkus Manfredi Architects will offer thoughts on:

– Pei’s impact on the city of Boston
– Pei’s impact on the field of architecture globally
– why we all think differently about buildings because of Pei

List of buildings in metropolitan Boston attributed to I.M. Pei:

– Government Center Master Plan, Boston
– John F. Kennedy Library, Boston
– West Wing of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
– Green Building at MIT, Cambridge
– Dreyfus Chemistry Building at MIT, Cambridge
– Ralph Landau Chemical Engineering Building at MIT, Cambridge
– Wiesner Building – Center for Arts and Media Technology at MIT, Cambridge
