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 
Hello, I'm in Delaware
City and Colour
Hello, I'm in Delaware

So there goes my life 
Passing by with every exit sign 
It’s been so long 
Sometimes I wonder how I will stay strong 
No sleep tonight 
I’ll keep on driving these dark highway lines 
And as the moon fades 
One more night gone, only twenty more days

So now that we know that Jessica Chastain definitely is not going to play Poison Ivy, I still have some options that would make me very happy.

Evan Rachel Wood

Alexandra Breckenridge 

Bryce Dallas Howard

Natalie Dormer (my new option…)

I know, I’m so obvious, so if someone has more names, more options, more actresses, I’d love to know!
