    “I. M. Pei: Life Is Architecture” Exhibition Guided Tour and Tea Gathering

    M+ Museum will soon be the first to present a large-scale retrospective exhibition of Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, who is known as the last master of modernist architecture, Mr Pei said, ‘The most beautiful architecture should be built on top of time, and time will give us all the answers.’ This exhibition will showcase I.M. Pei's 70 years of architectural design spanning various cities around the world and introduce to the public the close connection between architecture and social and cultural life through six themes: ‘Pei’s Cross-Cultural Foundations’, ‘Real Estate and Urban Redevelopment’, ‘Art and Civic Form’, ‘Power, Politics, and Patronage’, ‘Material and Structural Innovation’, and ‘Reinterpreting History through Design’.

    In order to give the public a deeper understanding of I.M. Pei's architectural designs, Maritime Silk Road Society is honoured to invite Mr Li Lin, a tutor from the Department of Chinese and History of City University of Hong Kong, to give a guided tour of I.M.
