Item description for Catalogue by Norman Foster...

Now in an updated and expanded edition, an invaluable guide to the work of one of the world's leading architects.

Highlighting recent projects, Norman Foster: Catalogue traces the development of the Foster studio from its formation in the 1960s to the present. More than 120 buildings and projects are featured in stunning full-color photographs and complemented by architectural plans, sketches, drawings, and informative essays. The book examines the distinctive features of Foster's work and shows the full range of the practice's achievements as urban planners, architects, and industrial designers. Underlying Foster and Partners' use of new technologies are concerns with sustainability and environmental issues in their designs. Organized by themes, the book includes the studio's latest buildings such as the Beijing Airport along with other important projects such as Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC, the Hearst Tower in New York, the Great Court at the British Museum in London, and Hong Kong's international airport.

Including numerous current works, unbuilt projects such as Foster's design for the World Trade Center competition, as well as buildings that showcase the essential characteristics of Foster's distinctive design philosophy, this book presents a comprehensive overview of the renowned architect's career to date.
