Apulia Development

I.M. Pei’s core philosophy was merging architecture with nature, cherishing heritage while creating the future. The emphasis on the interaction between architecture and the environment has given him a particular insight into site selection, and he has always been able to find and convey the meanings particular to a region’s culture in architectural language.

In 1974, I.M. Pei purchased a four-story residence on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Since the house was designed for Pei’s own use, it gives great insight into his personal style and modernist aesthetic.
