The GSD is proud to celebrate the 100th birthday of Ieoh Ming Pei, MArch ’46. Both I. M. and his wife Eileen Pei GSD '44 studied at the GSD, as did their sons Chien Chung (Didi) Pei, MArch '72, and Li Chung (Sandi) Pei, MArch '76. Pei was also an assistant professor of architecture at the GSD. This event, with guests including Harry Cobb AB '47 MArch ’49, moderated by Mohsen Mostafavi, dean of Harvard GSD and Alexander and Victoria Wiley Professor of Design, will focus on the formative years of I. M. Pei’s career as well as some of his special friendships, influences, and projects. The GSD, together with M+ Museum in Hong Kong, is also planning a symposium on the work of I. M. Pei for Fall 2017.
