Ieoh Ming Pei, commonly known as I. M. Pei, is a Chinese American architect, often called a master of modern architecture. Born in Canton, China and raised in Hong Kong and Shanghai, Pei drew inspiration at an early age from the gardens at Suzhou.

Pei's ancestry traces back to the Ming Dynasty, when his family moved from Anhui province to Suzhou.  Ieoh Ming Pei was born on April 26, 1917.
