Norman Foster Works 6
The sixth volume in this monumental survey of the works of architect Norman Foster focuses on the years 1996-2009 and projects towards an exciting future of continued architectural excellence.
This new 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, Singapore´s Supreme Court, the Hearst Tower in New York 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 through in-depth texts by contributors such as Paul Goldberger, Deyan Sudjic or Kenneth Powell. A final chapter looks forward to forthcoming projects, further detailing a momentous career highlighted by creativity, innovation and achievement.
“For Foster, Modernism is more of an unfinished experiment, and it is ongoing. The most important thing to be said about the work of Foster +Partners is that it emerges from the belief that Modernism is now.” PAUL GOLDBERGER
