If you are interested in architecture, this film gives you a remarkable insight into the life, thought and reasoning of one of the leading architects of this century.He is a fascinating speaker, candid in his self-assessment and generous to his colleagues and teachers. You accompany him at the sites of six of his major works -- most importantly his remaking of the world's largest museum -- the Louvre -- and emerge with an understanding of the many challenges -- technical,artistic, political, and the weight of tradition -- that press upon the decision of the design of a structure. A second film studies the design and construction of Pei's Miho Museum in the hills above Kyoto -- an extraordinary piece of work set in a stunning site -- and photos of a large assortment of Pei's other works top off the DVD. A must buy for students of architecture and institutions that teach, research or extol architects and their work.
