      I.M.Pei is very much in the news this week on his passing at age 102

      I. M. Pei, Venerated Architect Behind Iconic Museums, Is Dead at 102

      His architecture always aimed to be timeless.  As well as his famous modern pieces such as his pyramid at the Louvre he also designed pieces connecting the past and present such as the Suzhou museum, picture from ArtNews:

      “In China, architecture and the garden are one. A Western building is a building, and a garden is a garden. They’re related in spirit. But they are one in China.”
