Celebrated Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, who famously designed the Louvre Pyramid in Paris, passed away Thursday in the U.S. at the age of 102.

Pei won the Pritzker Architecture Prize, which is considered the field's highest honor. In addition to the once-controversial Pyramid, he designed the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong, the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C, and, more recently, the Suzhou Museum in east China’s Jiangsu province.

Born in southern China’s Guangzhou, Pei spent his childhood in Hong Kong and adolescence in Shanghai before moving to the U.S. for college.
