Product Description

Review

'An inspirational book for anyone interested in architecture or photographing buildings.’ -- Amateur Photographer, April 22, 2006

'Finest images of Foster images available… Reflections is in short, a neat translation of cerebral theory into irresistible sensuous imagery.’ -- Buildings, February 3, 2006

'Foster shares images of structures that have moved him over the years.' -- International Herald Tribune, June 8, 2006

'[Foster’s] personal selection of images – quite specific, often unusual, perspectives of different projects…provide[s] a fascinating source for reflection.’ -- New Design, February 1, 2006

`A fine example of architectural publishing... very well conceived
and produced book... great pacing in the picture selection and layout.' -- British Book Design & Publication Awards, 2006

‘Beautifully Illustrated visual retrospective giving a very personal insight into his last 40 years’ work.’ -- Sunseeker, May 1, 2006

‘Foster’s personal statement about architecture – which aspects, considerations and needs are addressed in the best architecture.' -- Listed Heritage, Summer 2006

‘Lavishly produced collection of black and white photos that thematically chart Foster’s work over the last four decades.’ -- Building Design, February 3, 2006

‘…will become a collector’s item.’ -- The Bookseller, February 3, 2006

I bought this book as a gift for a professional photographer friend whose specialism is architecture and he was totally impressed with the superb quality and range of the photographs included. The whole book is produced in black and white on excellent quality paper and although fairly heavy the almost square format makes it easy to hold and a pleasure to look at the abundance of double page spreads and full page photographs. If you have an interest in Norman Forster then this volume will give you an excellent opportunity to admire forty years of his work in one beautiful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional! 29 Sept. 2006
By Sergei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is great not only as a collection of Foster's works. In fact the Foster and Partners Catalog maybe a better book if you want pictures of his buildings in their entirety, some of their plans and descriptions. This book is basically nothing but GREAT B&W photographs, some of entire buildings, some of just single elements, but they are absolutely worth the price. So in essence it is two books in one, a showcase of some of the best contemporary architecture and a great photo art album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riccardo Cogliati 7 Feb. 2006
By Riccardo Cogliati - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The full essence of life and style of the greatest living Architect in the world are described by wonderful images which are showing his best creations, but not as a catalogue of realisations but as a set of details and unexpected views which are simply breathtaking! Foster is searching a new way to describe a tower, a bridge, a museum using a new key of illustration and showing inner and secret angles. I got the very big luck to have a NF signed copy as a gift directly from him, the value of that book is for me unvaluable.

great book with excellent black and white photography. As an architecture student, I found this book to be a great gift and resource. Packaging could have been better, but the book was still in very good condition.
