I.M. Pei, the most renowned Chinese American architect, leads viewers through the Louvre, the National Gallery of Art, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Bank of China, the Meyerson Symphony Center, the Miho Museum, and other examples of his extraordinary life's work. He discusses his work in China, his years at MIT and Harvard, and how he worked with such demanding clients as Jacqueline Kennedy, William Zeckendorf, Francois Mitterrand and Paul Mellon. He reveals his innermost philosophy and principles as he has never done before in this work by prolific Peter Rosen, whose awards include the prestigious Directors Guild of America Award.
