Library Journal - Library Journal
England's preeminent contemporary architect, Norman Foster has to his credit designs across the globe in a broad variety of building types, from cultural institutions to office buildings. His idiom remains Miesian, but Foster has explored its possibilities, in combination with historic vocabularies, in projects such as an addition to the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, the Sackler Galleries at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and the redesigned Reichstag in Berlin. With its reverential tone, this volume resembles a Festschrift, assembling 47 brief essays by as many critics and practitioners, followed by 50 short articles by Foster himself. Illustrated with small, uncaptioned black-and-white photographs, the essays on Foster are often insightful and intelligent. Similarly, Foster's comments on his work and that of other modern architects disclose his architectural values. Beautifully designed and worth the purchase price alone, the accompanying CD-ROM illustrates and describes Foster's oeuvre, classifying it by building type, with photographic images, plans, and sections. Recommended for all architecture collections. Paul Glassman, New York Sch. of Interior Design Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

On Foster...Foster On is an excellent collection of essays and images which cover the whole of Foster's career. It is not merely another presentation of the best-known work, but has comment from many voices and viewpoints, over a long time-span.
