From the Inside Flap
Featuring unparalleled depth of detail and insightful commentary, this latest addition to the comprehensive survey on Norman Foster, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect, focuses on works from the 1980s to the early 1990s. Norman Foster: Works 2 explores several of the architect's most recognizable buildings, including the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters in Hong Kong, which virtually reinvented the office tower; the Sackler Galleries at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, a project that epitomizes the effective intervention of contemporary design within historical buildings; and the Carre d'Art in Nimes, which unified architecture and urbanism to create a vibrant new cultural core at the heart of the city.
