Book Description

1 Jan 1992
Sir Norman Foster is regarded, on account of his work over three decades, as one of the UK's leading architects. His buildings, from spectacular large-scale projects such as the Hong King and Shanghai Bank and Stanstead Airport to intimate interiors such as the Sackler Galleries, incorporate the latest technical innovations, which the architect uses with enthusiasm in close co-operation with engineers and clients. His architectural idiom maintains a balance between British understatement and seductive elegance. The architect and experienced author Daniel Treiber follows Foster's work from its beginnings in Team 4 with Richard Rogers to the series of new buildings in the 1990's that show him at the high point of his career. The book culminates with Foster's scheme for the world's highest skyscraper in Tokyo Bay and concludes with a detailed list of works.

3.0 out of 5 stars An introduction to Foster's architecture 21 Oct 2005
By Michele Chiuini - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Given the amount of built work and graphic material produced by Foster Associates it is hard to compress it all in a small volume. This book does a decent job in balancing a clear text which is not just descriptive but provides a good introduction to Foster's philosophy. The material is however a bit dated, ending with the Hong Kong & Shanghai building and thus covering only the first half of Foster's career. Because of this I found this paperback to be a bit overpriced. However it is hard to find new books on Foster at bargain prices, and $ 25 is today, halas, a low price for an architecture book containing color illustrations.
