Item description for Norman Foster: Works 2 (Norman Foster Works) (Norman Foster Works) by Norman Foster, David Jenkins, Chris Abel, H. D. R. Baker, Colin Davies & Nora Osganian...

Featuring unparalleled depth of detail and insightful commentary, this latest addition to a comprehensive survey of Norman Foster, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect focuses on works from the 1980s to the early 1990s.

Norman Foster: Works 2 explores several of the architect's most recognizable buildings, including the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters in Hong Kong, which virtually reinvented the office tower; the Sackler Galleries at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, a project that epitomizes the effective intervention of contemporary design within historical buildings; and the Carr d'Art in Nmes, which unified architecture and urbanism to create a vibrant new cultural core at the heart of the city.

Bringing together contributions from noted commentators alongside essays and observations from Norman Foster and his colleagues this overview reveals the key characteristics of Foster's distinctive design philosophy, showing how a commitment to social and environmental concerns and the exploration of new technologies have been at the heart of his practice from the outset.

This is everything you can expect from a architetural book. I'm still short of the thrid volume, but that's a certain buy for me in the near future. It shows every stage of each project with an great amount of details insights and information. I only have to congratulate the good people of Prestel and the Editor for another great book.
