9780810937093: I.M. Pei: A Profile in American Architecture

"I.M. Pei: A Profile in American Architecture" is the first full-length study of the life and work of his extraordinary artist. Illustrated from the rich archives of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the book charts Pei's progress from his birth in China in 1917 through every milestone in his career to his preeminent position today. The author, noted architecture critic Carter Wiseman, has supplemented extensive and meticulous research with many hours of conversation with Pei, his family, and his associates. He focuses his text on twelve buildings of special relevance to Pei's career, and, whether discussing the Kennedy Library, the Louvre, or the Meyerson Symphony Center, he carefully considers the projects 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 charmismatic personality has affected events.

About the Author :

Carter Wiseman, former architecture critic at New York Magazine, is a contributing editor of ARTnews. He has written on architecture and design for such publications as Newsweek, Architectural Record, Interior Design, and American Heritage.

From Library Journal :

Chinese-American architect Pei has designed some of the most distinguished public buildings of the last four decades, from the Kennedy Library in Boston to the Louvre's controversial glass pyramid addition. This first book-length career survey traces Pei's rise from an MIT engineering student to head of an internationally renowned architectural firm. Journalist-author Wiseman anchors his readable text on 12 key commissions, but sometimes loses his way amid anecdotes of the rich and famous that do little to advance our understanding of Pei's architecture. Included are 340 color and black-and-white illustrations, a select bibliography, and a listing of works executed by the Pei firm. Recommended.
