RIP I M PEI

Recommended Posts

This won't get enough attention, IM pei changed skyline's cities around the world and that's just the beginning. When I get a chance, I'll try to find a feeling August ball. But even down in Houston,  arguably the most recognizable, the one that shows up in all the car commercials, was designed by i m pei.

 

Actually kind of cool that I was there for the groundbreaking.

Must be gratifying feeling to know that rather than having a single gravestone as your legacy, your work will be seen, used, and marveled at for generations after you've passed. 

 

If anybody finds a good listing or is impressed by a particular photo, feel free.

Lots of other cool places. 

Definitely deserves more attention. 

But I guess his work is his monument.

Did he do the Bobs Big Boy mascot? That's pretty cool if he did.
