Buildings Designed by I. M. Pei

I created this thread to honor the 100-year old Chinese-American architect, Ieoh Ming Pei! Post pictures of buildings designed by this legend here.

I'll start with the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong, which is perhaps the most famous building designed by Pei. We'll soon see with the finale of the Pei Cup!

One of the earlier IM Pei designs featured the support columns flaring out in the lobby. It was spectacular but got simplified to the design below. Commerce Court was completed in 1972 and rises to 239m. It is the global HQ of Canada's 5th biggest bank.
