RIP I.M. Pei

I. M. Pei, who began his long career designing buildings for a New York real estate developer and ended it as one of the most revered architects in the world, died early Thursday at his home in Manhattan. He was 102.

I had the good fortune to work with him on an amazing project in Japan not long after I graduated college. I was working as part of the exhibit design team on a museum he designed in the mountains outside of Kyoto. I fondly remember having one of those "pinch me" moments at about age 25, just the two of us alone in a gallery sitting at the base of a 15' statue of buddha discussing shadow lines for an hour.

He was an incredibly charming person.

For those interested, the Miho Museum was the project. Well worth the trek if you are in ever in the Kyoto area.

Very impressive!



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

A partner in his company designed the Hancock building in Boston. I remember it in the 1970s with plywood windows to cover the holes left by glass windows that had fallen to the streets below

I remember that, too.



It is what it is.

I worked in the John Hancock Tower in Boston for three years. 1999-2002. Was proud to walk in there every day. It was beautiful from every angle.
