Highlighting his most significant work, including recent and classic projects, Foster + Partners: Catalogue traces the development of the Foster studio from its formation in the 1960s to the present. More than 120 buildings and projects are featured in full-colour photographs and complemented by sketches and drawings. The book examines the distinctive features of Foster's work and shows the full range of the practice's achievements as urban planners, architects, and industrial designers. Underlying Foster + Partners' use of new technologies are concerns with sustainability and environmental issues in their designs. Organized by themes, it includes the studio's latest buildings such as the new wing at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Masdar Institute in Abu Dhabi, Wembley Stadium in London along with other important projects such as the Beijing Airport, the Hearst Tower in New York, the Great Court at the British Museum in London, and the distinctive headquarters tower for Swiss Re - winner of the 2004 Stirling Prize. Including buildings that showcase the essential characteristics of Foster's distinctive design philosophy, this book presents the most comprehensive overview of the renowned architect's career to date.
