I. M. Pei.

Ieoh Ming Pei (born Canton, China, 1917 - ), is a Chinese-American architect; Pei is best known as I. M. Pei. He was trained at MIT and Harvard. For ten years he worked with real estate tycoon William Zeckendorf. In 1955, he formed I.M. Pei & Partners. I. M. Pei is the 1983 Pritzker Architecture Prize laureate.

Due to his reliance on abstract form and materials such as stone, concrete, glass, and steel, Pei has been considered a disciple of Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer (Bauhaus architects), both of whom he studied with at Harvard. [1]
