Description

This unique critical appraisal of the work of Foster & Partners offers a number of original revelations about the philosophy and design methods that have generated the designs and reputation of the Foster studio over the past three decades. The author begins with a distinctly personal account of Norman Foster's first steps in the world of architecture and goes on to discuss some key buildings which have become symbols of our time.

Reviews

'Beautifully presented…the author gets under the skin of the meister through a series of verbatim interviews with Foster and his partners, architectural drawings and - best of all - wonderful sketches by Foster himself.' - Building Design
