I. M. Pei

The last building designed by legendary architect I. M. Pei was the museum in Suzhou, China. It is a masterpiece. Pei, who had roots in Suzhou, referred to the classical gardens of Suzhou when he designed this modern building.

Pei was even more direct in creating mountains in a courtyard than were the designers of the old gardens.
