Format: Paperback
While having first-hand experience of what it is like to study inside one of Foster's creations (the fabulous Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and faculty of arts for the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK) I have developed something of a passion for his work. The excitement of Foster's designs and current projects is conveyed with each page, demonstrating his unique talents with materials and cutting edge design and the amazing clarity of his thinking. From his very first construction to the ongoing Reichstag renovation in Berlin, and the soon-to-be built Millenium Tower in London. This shows that Norman Foster is truely up there with the likes of Frank Ghery and his recent Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. In this instance, definately a case of being able to judge a book by its cover.
