Two decades after the structure's appearance in the courtyard of the Louvre, this book tells the story of I. M. Pei s pyramid, from its conception and original designs to its construction and finished state. I. M. Pei's glittering addition to the Louvre Museum in Paris has already become an iconic emblem of France's past and future.

Format: Hardcover
A well-recorded concise record of this significant architectural statement by the most notable Chinese-American Architect (and perhaps arguably the very best Architect) of our time. The content is insightful of the development of the project and is supplemented with magnificent photos throughout printed on acid-free paper. A most worthwhile keepsake to grace any coffee table or bookshelf.
