American Masters

I.M. Pei: Building China Modern

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Now in his early 90s, I.M. Pei was invited to design a modern museum to house the antiquities of Suzhou. This film follows this personal and architectural journey from west to east, an expansive full-circle, a literal coming home -- a realization of Pei's lifelong dream. But also, his biggest challenge and, seven and a half years in the making, a work that he ultimately defines as "my biography." While Pei's perspective is always in the forefront, local residents, design specialists, Suzhou officials, architects, designers and scholars comment on Pei's life and work.
