Foster and Partners is one of the most significant architectural practices in the world today, a fact recognised by Norman Foster's receipt of the Pritzker Prize in 1999 and the Praemium Imperiale in 2002 - marks of the highest international distinction for achievement in architecture and the arts.
The last few years have seen some of Foster's most remarkable and ambitious projects around the world. In London, the Swiss Re headquarters - the capital's first ecological tall building - has become a popular landmark, while the arch of the new Wembley Stadium is already a familiar element on the skyline. In New York the distinctive headquarters tower for the Hearst Corporation pioneers new environmental standards for Manhattan office buildings.
This new catalogue documents the practice's work over the last four decades. With detailed descriptions of more than eighty buildings and projects, it offers a comprehensive survey of the practice's diverse activities as urban planners, architects and industrial designers, covering a spectrum from the scale of the city masterplan to the detail of a door handle. It includes designs for airports, railway stations, bridges, museums, schools, universities, offices, private houses, furniture and products.
