Featuring unparalleled depth of detail and insightful commentary, this latest addition to a comprehensive survey of 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 Hong Kong 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 Carré d'Art in Nîmes, which unified architecture and urbanism to create a vibrant new cultural core at the heart of the city. Bringing together contributions from noted commentators alongside essays and observations from Norman Foster and his colleagues this overview reveals the key characteristics of Foster's distinctive design philosophy, showing how a commitment to social and environmental concerns and the exploration of new technologies have been at the heart of his practice from the outset --- Product Description

The second episode of "Brits who Built the Modern World" focuses on the 1980s, when modern architecture was deeply unpopular and under attack from the Prince of Wales. The architects reveal the dramatic stories behind some of their most famous creations, including Rogers's Lloyd's of London building and Foster's Stansted Airport. Terry Farrell reveals how he was kept in the dark when he was designing the MI6 Headquarters; Michael Hopkins recalls the challenges of bringing ultra-modern architecture into the traditional world of Lord's Cricket Ground; and Nicholas Grimshaw follows in the footsteps of the great Victorian engineers with his Waterloo International station

The final episode of "Brits who Built the Modern World" focuses on the late 1990s to the present day, when Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, Nicholas Grimshaw, Michael Hopkins and Terry Farrell were at the peak of their success - building iconic landmarks across Britain and the world - but also facing some of the biggest controversies of their careers. Rogers reveals what went wrong with the Millennium Dome; Foster recalls the wobbles of London's Millennium Bridge; and Michael Hopkins explains how his new parliamentary building, Portcullis House, became the most expensive office block in Britain. Also featured are the stories behind some of Britain's most popular modern architecture - Nicholas Grimshaw's Eden Project and Foster's 'Gherkin' - and a look at this generation's success overseas, including Terry Farrell's work in China
The Brits who built the modern world( Visual )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, Nicholas Grimshaw, Michael Hopkins and Terry Farrell were born within six years of each other in the 1930s. Shaped by the optimism of the post-war years and the sixties counterculture, these pillars of today's establishment began their careers as outsiders and radicals. The first episode in this series includes glimpses of some of their recent work, such as London's new 'Cheese grater' skyscraper, Spaceport America and the KK100 skyscraper in China before looking in detail at revolutionary projects from the 1960s and 70s. Rogers and his collaborators tell the story of the Pompidou Center in Paris. Other early projects featured include Norman Foster's glassy Willis Faber & Dumas Headquarters in Ipswich, Farrell & Grimshaw's corrugated aluminum tower block next to Regent's Park in London and the industrial-style Hopkins House in Hampstead

Harry Seidler : lifework by Vladimir Belogolovskiĭ( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive survey of the work of a master of mid- to late-twentieth-century modernist design. Over the course of a career spanning more than five decades, Australian architect Harry Seidler embarked upon a long series of dramatically innovative and sculptural houses with a rare sensitivity to site, space, and structure. And while these soaring, inspiring houses have been the source of Seidler's fame within architectural circles, this book gives a complete view of this modern master's body of work for the first time. Seidler is now widely acknowledged as a leading member of the postwar generation of modernists and one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century in the southern hemisphere. With commissions not only in Australia but also in Austria, France, Israel, Italy, Mexico, and Hong ..." --Publisher description
The Great Court at the British Museum : Foster + Partners by Norman Foster( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From initial sketches to final project, this book documents the "reinvention" of the British Museum's Great Court. One of the world's greatest institutions of learning and art, the British Museum sees nearly six million visitors annually. Yet until Norman Foster's remarkable transformation of its courtyard, the enormous rambling structure was like a city without a park. Numerous photographs reveal the court from a variety of perspectives and show the cutting-edge technology of the spectacular glazed canopy that shelters what is now the largest covered public space in Europe. Involving the magnificent restoration of the Reading Room, the creation of new galleries for African art and a range of educational resources, the Great Court project was a herald of the British Museum's wider transformation. The project and this book illuminate Foster + Partners' holistic and ingenious approach to contemporary design

Carré d'art, Nîmes : Foster + Partners by Norman Foster( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and French and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the Carre d'Art project, a modern library of art and technology inspired by an ancient Roman temple in the French city of Nimes. Located across the street from one of Nimes' most distinctive Roman antiquities, the Roman Maison Carre, sits the Carre d'Art, a media library which also houses an impressive art gallery. Designed by the renowned architect Norman Foster, the Carre d'Art draws from the antiquity of its namesake while ingeniously interacting with the contemporary demands of an urban environment. The result is an urban space, lined with cafes and thronged with people, that has breathed new life into Nimes' social and cultural atmosphere. Filled with photographs, sketches, plans, and commentary on the building's conception and design, this book illustrates how a building project, backed by an enlightened urban planning initiative, can provide a catalyst for reinvigorating the fabric of a city. --Book Description from Website
