Happy 90th, I.M. Pei

I want to give a Friday morning acknowledgement to I. M. Pei, who, I would call, the last great architect. He likes to work primarily with stone, concrete, and glass. You have no doubt seen many of his achievements, ranging from the Louvre Pyramid to the East Building at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. (both pictured below) Pei turned 90 yesterday, yet he is still able to produce new projects at an astonishing rate. His latest is the NASCAR Hall of Fame, set to open in 2009.
