    Is it possible to purchase a copy of lthe American Masters program “I M Pei, Building China Modern”?

    Two years ago, we had a Chinese student living with us. His father is an archetechture student at Kansas State and we would like to get a copy of the show to give to him.

    Thanks

    The list is impressive. I have been lucky enough to be inside two of the buildings listed–the Louvre Pyramid and the Columbus Indiana Public Library. Columbus Indiana is a must-see for architecture fans. A relatively small town (fewer than 40k people), the home of Cummins Co., which set up an endowment for architecture and public art. Besides Pei, you can see buildings by the Saarinens, art by Henry Moore–more than 70 different works. It’s in southern Indiana, south east of Indianapolis. Don’t miss it.

    An additional comment/question? I had to check my facts to be sure– Indiana University Art Museum was designed by I.M. Pei & Partners. Construction began in 1978 and ended in 1982, created without a single right angle anywhere in the building’s structure except for some stairs. Every wall, corner, and ceiling meets another point at some angle other than 90 degrees.

    Any idea why this building was omitted from the list?
