NY Times: Son of IM Pei Carries On His Father’s Legacy


Louvre, IM PeiLi Chung Pei is the son of legendary architect, IM Pei. Li Chung is founding partner along with his brother of Pei Parnerships Architect. The younger Pei talked to the New York Times  about his father’s influence on him and his latest projects.

He no longer sees his father’s legacy as a burden on his own career, but now sees it as an advantage. He still considers his father his mentor.

Well, he continues to be a great example. I think mostly it was just by his example, by the work he’s done. But he was also a terrific father — very, very supportive and nurturing — and I think he taught me a lot of values and valuable lessons that had nothing to do with architecture.
