Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The fourth installment of a projected six-volume compendium of Norman Foster's works from the 1960s onward, this book covers the period 1991-2001. The book features Foster's National Gallery of Scottish Art in Glasgow, the World Port Centre in Rotterdam and the Commerzbank Headquarters in Frankfurt am Main, along with 29 other projects. There are 15 contributors (including Foster himself), with a nice text-to-illustration ratio (there are 1000 illustrations in b&w, 1000 in color), and a layout that resembles a thoughtful architecture textbook. Detail drawings and site plans will have architecture professionals excited; for others, a less specialized-and less complete-volume on Foster will better serve.
