Following I.M. Pei's death last week at the age of 102, CBS has uploaded a couple clips from its archive, one focusing on the Louvre Pyramid in Paris and the other on the JFK Presidential Library in Boston.
First is a 1987 profile of Pei by Diane Sawyer on 60 Minutes, a couple years before the Louvre Pyramid would open to the public:
Second is an October, 1979, airing of Sunday Morning, when Pei talked with Marlene Sanders at the newly-dedicated John F. Kennedy Presidential Library:
Bonus: A short documentary, The National Gallery Builds from 1978, shows the construction of another of Pei's masterpieces, one year before its opening:
