Louvre architect I M Pei dies aged 102

I M Pei, the architect behind buildings including the glass pyramid outside the Louvre in Paris, has died aged 102.

Tributes have been pouring in, remembering him for a lifetime of designing iconic structures worldwide.

Pei was born in Guangzhou, China in 1917, and moved to the US at 18 to study at Pennsylvania, MIT and Harvard.

He carried on working well into old age, creating one of his most famous masterpieces - the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar - in his 80s.



R.I.P. to a great architect :( . His Louvre design has become an international icon, and I hope that it - along with his other masterpieces - stands in his memory for many years to come.

My condolences to his friends and family.

He helped come up with a plan in downtown OKC, which was never really finished. This is a concept art of his original concept, including the Myriad Gardens.

Oh wow, I didn't know he designed anything so close to your home :O . I mean, I knew he designed a lot (he was active well into old age, and it was a very long life), but that's not one I'd heard about.

(Or, maybe you did tell me about that one, but I just didn't know it was him who designed it!)
