The sixth volume in a monumental survey of the works of Norman Foster focuses on the years 1996–2009—and projects towards an exciting future of continued architectural excellence.
Winner of the Pritzker Prize and the Praemium Imperiale, Norman Foster is one of the most innovative and forwardthinking architects at work today. This volume features more than 1,000 plans, sketches, and photographs of some of Foster’s most renowned projects, including London’s new Wembley Stadium, Germany’s Dresden Station, and Beijing’s new international airport. These and other important structures, along with lighting systems, furniture collections, and memorials, reveal the enormous range of Foster + Partners’ work. In addition to offering insights into individual projects, this volume contextualizes Foster’s work, identifying themes and connections, discussing influences and inspirations, and invoking a host of historical, cultural, and architectural references. A final chapter looks forward to forthcoming projects, further detailing a momentous career highlighted by creativity, innovation, and achievement.
