Summary note
Norman Foster has transcended historic conventions of architecture bu pushing the limits of technology and engineering. His high-tech modernist structures, often based on diagrids of steel and glass, are characterized by open-plan, adaptable spaces, light-filled atria and capacious roofs, while he is also one of the first architects to embrace digitally driven and sustainable design. Awe-inspiring creations such as 30 St Mary Axe in London and Hearst Tower in New York City have transformed city skylines and achieved international acclaim. The complexity and innovation of Foster's buildings are celebrated in this curated selection of images, accompanied by an assay of his life and work.
