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.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
