The Norman Foster Studio : Consistency Through Diversity
The Norman Foster Studio :
Consistency Through Diversity
PDF | 224 Pages | 10 mb
Malcolm Quantrill first met Norman Foster in 1991, when he wrote an article on Foster's Tokyo Century Tower. The result was a collaboration between unatrill and the Foster studio in the production of this unique study of the Foster ethos.
The Norman Foster Studio offers a number of original revelations about the philosophy and design methods that have generated the reputation of the Foster studio over the past three decades.
Quantrill's explorations begin with a distinctly personal account of Norman Foster's childhood and beginnings in the world of architecture, and continues with a dialohue between the author and each of the five members of the Foster parternship.
At the core of this book is the provocative critique of some of Foster's key buildings and projects including the Joslyn Museum Extension in Omaha.
In the first truly comprehensive critique of the Foster oeuvre, the book is fully illustrated throughout and contains many original drawings by SirNorman Foster and much previously unpublished material from the practice archives.
