© Benh Lieu Song OBITUARY Louvre pyramid architect IM Pei dies at 102


Renowned Chinese architect IM Pei, designer of the glass pyramid outside the Louvre in Paris, the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Boston’s John F Kennedy Library and Museum, and many other key buildings, has died aged 102.


Famous for designing buildings which displayed precision in their geometry as well as employing natural


light, Pei continued working into old age, designing the Doha museum in his eighties. He was born in Guangzhou, China and studied in the US, at Pennsylvania, MIT and Harvard, before working for the US Government during World War Two.


He founded his own practice in 1955, and became one of the 20th century’s most prolific architects, designing


buildings across North America, Asia and Europe. His modernist style was influenced by cubism and a love of Islamic architecture, and often combined glass, steel and concrete. Pei was quoted as saying that architecture was a “pragmatic art,” and “to become art it must be built on a foundation of necessity.” He received the Pritzker Prize in 1983.


Bangor town centre to be ‘revitalised’ in £50m scheme REDEVELOPMENT


Queens Parade in Bangor, Northern Ireland, is set to undergo a major £50m redevelopment which will see the area transformed into a revitalised, sustainable and contemporary seafront. TODD Architects are the designers


behind the new waterfront redevelopment, working closely with North Down & Ards Borough Council, the Department for Communities NI and the developer Bangor Marine, a consortium which includes Farrans and the Karl Group. The proposed redevelopment plan


includes the refurbishment of existing commercial properties and the creation of outside events space. Marine Gardens’ public realm combines external events space, cafes, sheltered promenade and kiosks, beach, seafront lawns, children's play area, water feature, plus a hotel. It also includes a destination/cinema building, residential units, commercial, retail and restaurant space, office space, a play zone, as well as the refurbishment of existing commercial properties. Peter Minnis, director at TODD


Architects, commented, “We are delighted to announce our involvement in this transformative scheme, for which we are working closely with North Down & Ards Borough Council, The Department for Communities NI, and Bangor Marine consortium. This exciting opportunity will see the area regenerated into a revitalised, sustainable and contemporary seafront, enhancing Bangor's appeal as a top Northern Ireland destination.” The planning process has commenced, with work expected to begin in 2020.
