Message of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the United States on the Passing of Mr. I.M. Pei

We are deeply saddened by the passing of the world-renowned architect, Mr. I.M. Pei and wish to send our sincere condolences to his family. Mr. I.M. Pei’s iconic and graceful designs and buildings have been some of the greatest architectural contribution to the world. As a Chinese born American, he devoted all his life to promoting cultural exchanges between the two countries as well as mutual understanding between the two peoples. One of his greatest designs, the chancery of the Chinese Embassy in Washington DC, seamlessly melds the East and the West as a symbol of enduring relations and a shared future. We celebrate his legacy and lasting impact on the world.
