The legacy of American architect I.M. Pei stretches from west to east, from the Louvre museum to his native China, where he helped fuse tradition with modernity as the country opened up after the Cultural Revolution.

The architecture adopts the traditional colors of white and grey as its main tone, while the traditional Chinese architectural elements, such as the application and combination of hills, plants and waters have been applied in a modern way. He also was commissioned to design the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, which opened in 2008.

Local architecture photographer Darren Soh, who has photographed Mr Pei's creations in Singapore on multiple occasions, said his designs have stood the test of time.

The famed architect I.M. Pei has died.

"I understand that times have changed, we have evolved".

Born in China in 1917, banker's son Ieoh Ming Pei came to the U.S. at 17 to study architecture, receiving an undergraduate degree in the field from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1940. But I don't want to forget the beginning.

The concrete and glass structure features huge mirrored pyramids and a 15-metre (50-foot) waterfall.

Pei won the global Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1983.

Ms Charu Kokate, principal at Safdie Architects, met him at the Edward MacDowell Medal ceremony in 1998 where Mr Pei was the first architect to receive the medal for outstanding contributions to the arts.

Pei said of the project: "All through the centuries, the Louvre has undergone violent change".

Pei designed the more modern pyramid structure outside the famed Louvre museum in Paris.

In addition to his museum oeuvre and contributions to the government and commercial landscape, Pei also worked on moderate and low-income housing.

Pei designed the east building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington.

During his life, he collected at least half of the American awards for architecture, including the Pritzker Prize, which is called the Nobel Prize of architecture.

Born in China in 1917, banker's son Ieoh Ming Pei came to the United States at 17 to study architecture, receiving an undergraduate degree in the field from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1940 and then receiving a master's degree in architecture at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design in 1946.

Pei officially retired in 1990 but continued to work on projects.

Ieoh Ming Pei was born April 26, 1917, in Canton, China, the son of a banker. His forms were recognizably derived from such great architects as Le Corbusier and Louis I. Kahn, though he filtered them through a unique artistic sensibility. "McCutcheon had been impressed with Pei's Place Ville Marie in Montreal, Canada (1955-66), which had consolidated a number of sites and provided a mixed-use concept for the entire development", wrote Philip Goad in Bates Smart: 150 Years of Australian Architecture.

However, World War II and the revolution in China prevented him from going back. His 1980s design for New York's Jacob Javits Convention Center, for instance, is still less-than loved.
