I.M. Pei, the architect of some of the world's most iconic structures, such as the glass pyramid of the Louvre museum, dies at 102.
Among some of the most important buildings designed by Pei Partnership Architects, I.M. Pei and C.C. Pei also designed the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, claimed to be the most technologically advanced hospital in the US.
The design vision was to create an environment that optimizes healing. The space is open and light-filled, organized in pavilions with glass walls facing outdoors, and includes gardens and gathering places. Patient rooms feature panoramic views and bring in an abundance of natural, healing light.
I..M. Pei's work represented a careful balance of the cutting edge and the conservative. His latest project was the design of the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar.
