564 pp. 500 illustrations in b&w, 800 in color. 4to. Never read. Small damage to the edge of the plastic cover. Book The third installment of the six-volume compendium of Norman Foster’s works. This volume focuses on projects realised from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, including Stansted Airport outside London, Bilbao’s subway system, and the Millennium Tower in Tokyo. This volume examines each project in depth, featuring numerous photographs, original sketches and computer-generated drawings. From airports to underground transit stations, from museums to office towers, every building designed by Foster and Partners is a study in the synthesis of a structure’s individual elements: its foundation and use, the quality of its materials, and its relation to the skyline or cityscape.
