建筑师贝聿铭逝世,享年102岁

I.M. Pei, one of the best-known architects of the 20th century, has died. He was 102.

20世纪最著名的建筑师之一贝聿铭逝世,享年102岁。

Born in China, Ieoh Ming Pei moved to the United States in 1935 to study architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University.

贝聿铭出生于中国,1935年移居美国,在麻省理工学院和哈佛大学学习建筑。

Pei’s works around the world include museums, government buildings, hotels, schools and other structures built with stone, steel and glass.

贝聿铭的作品遍布世界各地,包括博物馆、政府大楼、酒店、学校和其他用石头、钢铁和玻璃等建成的建筑物。

One of his best-known and most disputed works was built 30 years ago.Pei created a new entrance for the world-famous Louvre Museum in Paris.

他最著名和最有争议的作品之一是30年前建造的。贝聿铭为举世闻名的巴黎卢浮宫设计了一个新入口。

Pei first spent four months studying the museum and French history.He then drew plans for a 21-meter-tall steel and glass pyramid, with three smaller pyramids nearby.It was a very futuristic style of work for the 12th-century building.

贝聿铭最初花了四个月的时间研究博物馆和法国历史。然后他画了一幅21米高的钢和玻璃建造的金字塔的计划,附近还设计了三个较小的金字塔。对于这座12世纪的建筑来说,这是一种非常未来主义的风格。

A French newspaper denounced Pei’s pyramids as “an annex to Disneyland.”An environmental group said they belonged in a desert.Others accused Pei of ruining one of the world’s greatest landmarks.

一家法国报纸谴责贝聿铭设计的金字塔是迪斯尼乐园的附属建筑。一个环保组织说金字塔就应该在沙漠。还有人指责贝聿铭毁了世界上最伟大的地标之一。

Pei said the Louvre was the most difficult job of his career.He argued that he had wanted to create a modern space that would not take away from the traditional part of the museum.He said the glass pyramids were based on the works of French landscape architect Le Notre.They honored French history.

贝聿铭说卢浮宫是他职业生涯中最难的工作。他争辩说,他想要创造一个不会破坏博物馆传统部分的现代空间。他说,玻璃金字塔是基于法国景观设计师勒诺特尔的作品。他们深深的法国的历史为荣。

The pyramids opened in the spring of 1989.Over the years that followed, his entrance came to be loved by most, if not all, of its critics.

金字塔于1989年春天开放。在随后的几年里,该建筑受到了大多数(如果不是全部的话)评论家的喜爱。

Other well-known Pei buildings include the John F. Kennedy Library in Dorchester, Massachusetts, the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado,the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Dallas City Hall in Texas.

贝聿铭其他著名的建筑作品包括马萨诸塞州多切斯特的约翰·肯尼迪图书馆、科罗拉多州博尔德的国家大气研究中心、华盛顿的国家艺术馆东翼和德克萨斯州的达拉斯市政厅。

Pei officially retired in 1990.However, he continued to work on projects -- including museums in Luxembourg, Qatar and his ancestral home of Suzhou.

贝聿铭于1990年正式退休。然而,他继续从事一些项目——包括卢森堡、卡塔尔的博物馆,以及他的祖籍苏州的一些博物馆。
