OK so it isn't a cheap book, and simply calling it a "catalogue" doesn't exactly do it justice, but the catalogue is a great way of appreciating the variety of interesting and thought provoking work the practice has undertaken. Packed full of photos, commentary, concept sketches etc.
Its very much project focused, so there is only a little bit about Norman Foster and the practice, so I guess you'll need to buy one of Norman Foster's books to find out more about the man himself.
So bearing in mind it directly contributed to me finally getting what modern architecture was all about, it was a very good buy for me.
If you have any interest in architecture, or just in the buildings around you this book is an absolute must. At it's current price of £6.80 it's little dearer than a magazine and must be the publishing bargain of the decade. Buy this book and enjoy it for years to come. As you have probably worked out by now I unreservedly recommend this book.
