IM Pei 

Chinese-American architect IM Pei turned 100 this week. To celebrate, Dezeen selected 10 of his most iconic buildings from a career that spans seven decades.

His architecture is identifiable through its strict geometries – combinations of circles, squares and triangles that manifest in both two and three dimensions in plan, section and elevation. The firm’s oeuvre ranges from a curving brick chapel to soaring glass-sheathed skyscrapers, and includes museums, libraries and civic centres in locations across the globe.

Identified from the top:

  • Le Grand Louvre, Paris, France, 1989 
  • Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong, China, 1990 
  • Suzhou Museum, Suzhou, China, 2006 
  • Museum of Islamic Art, Doha, Qatar, 2008 
  • Dallas City Hall, Dallas, USA, 1978 
  • Luce Memorial Chapel, Taichung, Taiwan, 1963 
  • Miho Museum, Kyoto, Japan, 1997 
  • Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, USA, 1995 
  • Kennedy Library, Boston, USA, 1979 
  • National Gallery of Art East Building, Washington DC, USA, 1978
