Chinese-American architect Pei I.M. has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Pritzker Prize, and the Praemium Imperiale. His work ranges from the Kennedy Library in Boston to the Louvre's controversial glass pyramid addition, some of the distinguished public buildings of the last half century. This first book-length career survey traces Pei's rise from an MIT engineering student to head of an internationally renowned architectural firm.
