Sir Norman Foster's architectural projects have transformed cityscapes, renewed vital transportation hubs and rejuvenated town centres. Ambitious and controversial, Foster succeeds in marrying a modern sensibility with a masterly treatment of the architecture of the past. His commissions include the reconstruction of the Reichstag in Berlin and the new Hong Kong international airport. This work showcases, with photographs and sketches, plans and models, Foster's far-reaching genius, which combines technological prowess and global-minded design philosophy. Produced in conjunction with Foster's office, this volume includes depiction of the Valencia Congress Center and the Great Court at the British Museum. Including a chronological survey of the architect's career, and essays on industrial architecture, deep-plan buildings, energy and urbanism, this is a tribute to a figure who continues to impact upon architecture and urban planning.
