In Memoriam: I.M. PeiI.M. Pei was a visionary who utilized his design talents to create stunning spaces and structures around the world to help people learn and develop deeper understanding around other cultures. He had a strong and longtime connection to China Institute, having been a distinguished honoree at our 2014 Blue Cloud Gala, while his son Chien Chung Pei serves as co-chair of our Board of Trustees. We were saddened to hear about his passing and recognize both the many buildings he created and the building of connections he fostered throughout his distinguished career. Our deepest condolences to the Pei family, his friends, and the architecture world on the loss of a legendary pioneer.
