Overview

Now back in stock by popular demand, an invaluable guide to the work of one of the world’s leading architects.

Long before terms such as “green” and “sustainability” became fashionable, Norman Foster was designing buildings that were environmentally sensitive and highly adaptable. Today, this Pritzker Prize-winning architect is famous for such monumental structures as Hong Kong’s new international airport, the rebuilding of the Reichstag in Berlin, and the Great Court at the British Museum in London.

This survey of more than forty years of work demonstrates how, over a period of tremendous social and technological transformation, Foster and Partners continue to adhere to the themes and concerns that have always shaped their work. Richly illustrated with photographs and drawings, and featuring text by Norman Foster, this catalogue explores all aspects of the practice’s achievements as urban planners, architects, and industrial designers. In addition to airports, railway stations, bridges, museums, universities, offices and private houses, the book includes designs of telecommunications and energy infrastructures, street furniture and smaller household items. Together these works form a complex of intelligent, thoughtful, and visionary work by an ever-changing, yet consistently brilliant design team.
