The third volume in a series devoted to the works of Norman Foster, the Pritzker Award-winning architect.

Foster Works 3 focuses on projects realized from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, including the Stansted Airport outside of London, Bilbao’s subway system, and the Millennium Tower in Tokyo. This volume examines each project in depth, featuring numerous photographs, original sketches and computer-generated drawings. From airports to underground transit stations, from museums to office towers, every structure designed by Foster and Partners is a study in the synthesis of a structure’s individual elements: its foundation and use, the quality of its materials, and its relation to the skyline or streetscape. Students of architecture, professionals in the field, and enthusiasts of Foster’s work will find much to inspire and educate them in this substantive and attractive volume.

David Jenkins is an architect, editor and writer based in the Foster studio. He is the former editor of the Architect’s Journal and editor of the Norman Foster Works series.
