Beginning with the architect’s formative years, this collection of essays attempts to do justice to Norman Foster’s mighty trajectory. A visionary humanist, Foster has built his oeuvre on the margins of aesthetic fashions and with an extraordinary continuity between early and later projects. From the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank and the Bilbao metro to interventions in historical areas for cultural institutions, transformative airport concepts like London Stansted or Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok, and the symbolic weight of the Reichstag in Berlin, Foster’s constructions speak a language of technique and prefigure the future while also being attentive to the lessons of the past.


96 p, ills bw, 16 x 21 cm, pb, English
