There's a professor on the faculty here (university of illinois architecture)
who is very knowledgable on current japanese architecture.
If you like I.M. Pei, I suggest you look into other japanese architects,
there are many others who would remind you enough of I.M. Pei to interest
you, but also a lot of varied styles.
The professor here has written two books on currenmt japanese architecture,
the first being called (i think) "japanese architecture" and the second
being called "the new japanese architecture". His name is Botand Bognar.

The books are fantastic, and will provide you with some in depth reading
to supplement your picture viewing. Try to find them, I think you'll
enjoy them.
