Summary I.M. Pei has been called the most important living modern architect, defining the landscapes of some of the world's greatest cities. Pei is the senior statesman of modernism and last surviving link to such great early architects as Corbusier, Gropius, and Mies van der Rohe. The program follows Pei, now in his eighties, as he returns to his ancestral home of Suzhou, where he has been commissioned to build a modern museum in the city's oldest neighbourhood.
