Norman Foster: Works 5

Norman Foster: Works 5
Hardcover
$ 150.00| £ 85.00 (* recommended retail price)

Winner of the Pritzker Prize and the Praemium Imperiale, Norman Foster is one of the most innovative and forward-thinking architects at work today. This volume features approximately 1,400 plans, sketches, and photographs of some of Foster""s most renowned and celebrated international projects, including Chek Lap Kok Airport in Hong Kong, Expo Station in Singapore, the Valencia Congress Centre, The SageGateshead, the Millau Viaduct in France, and the Swiss Re tower in London, along with numerous other outstanding works. Also included here are examples of Foster""s striking product designs and furniture.

In addition to offering insights into individual projects, the book contextualises Foster's work, identifying themes and connections across the decades, discussing influences and inspirations, and invoking a host of historical, cultural and architectural references. Above all, this overview reveals the key characteristics of Foster's distinctive design philosophy, showing how his integrity and attention to detail are evident in every built structure that bears the practice's name - from the most impressive airport terminal to the most ergonomically functional door handle.
