Item description for Norman Foster: Works 3 by David Jenkins & Norman Foster...
Norman Foster Works 3 focuses on projects realized from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, including Stansted Airport outside London, Bilbao's subway system, and the Millennium Tower in Tokyo. This volume examines each project in depth, featuring numerous photographs, original sketches and computergenerated drawings. From airports to underground transit stations, from museums to office towers, every building 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 cityscape. Students of architecture, professionals in the field, and enthusiasts of Foster's work will find much to inspire and educate them in this substantial and attractive volume.
