Sept 2001
(Hardcover) - Revised Ed.

From Library Journal
Abrams first published Wiseman's study of I.M. Pei in 1990, and this revised edition adds projects that Pei completed from 1990 to 2001, during which he designed three major museums, completed his work on the Louvre, and gave us the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Pei was also thinking small as he aged, taking on commissions and building a harmony that played out in dramatic forms that match their purpose. Former architecture critic for New York magazine and a contributing editor of ArtNews, Wiseman (Twentieth-Century American Architecture) presents a thoughtful and detailed look at Pei and his work, along with 65 full-color illustrations and many more in black and white. Wiseman is equally interested in the architect's designs, his persona, and the place of his buildings in a sociological context. A ...

There is increased interest in growing willow and poplar trees, as fast-growing species that have several purposes, including use as biofuels for energy production. However, silviculture is constrained by diseases such as MelampsoraA rusts, which have ben extensively studied over the past two

Book Description
This fascinating, detailed examination of renowned architect I. M. Pei’s spectacular new wing of the German Historical Museum in Berlin is published to coincide with the unveiling of the extension in 2003. The stunning glass building, with its triangular footprint and seemingly weightless curved staircase, offers a striking departure from the museum’s older structures, and plays an important role in Berlin’s current architectural and cultural renaissance. Pei, in effect illuminating history with his design, provides an optimistic footnote to this important European institution, and a refreshingly simple and elegant annex to the museum’s more ponderous main buildings. Essays from renowned architectural scholars comment on Pei’s design, provide a history of the Arsenal building and site, and...
