Sir Norman Foster by Philip Jodidio( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Décrit un principe que Foster manie avec une rare virtuosité, à savoir "retourner" un intérieur, en mettant à nu la structure portante et les unités fonctionnelles du bâtiment. Le résultat, fascinant et fragile, n'est pas sans évoquer la complexité d'une machinerie, contrebalancée par l'élégance d'éléments high-tech, qui évitent à l'ensemble tout caractère monumental
Norman Foster : a global architecture by Martin Pawley( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This addition to Universe's architecture series showcases, with color photographs and a vast range of sketches and plans, Foster's rare and far-reaching genius, which combines peerless technological prowess with a global-minded design philosophy. Produced in conjunction with Foster's office, this volume is among the first to include Foster's newest work: including the Valencia Congress Center and the Great Court at the British Museum."--Jacket

Harry Seidler : lifework by Vladimir Belogolovskiĭ( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 140 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 Kong since establishing his own practice in Sydney in 1948, his work has influenced the course of modernist design into the twenty-first century

The Great Court at the British Museum : Foster + Partners by Norman Foster( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 125 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
The Reichstag : Foster + Partners by Norman Foster( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1990s Norman Foster transformed Berlin's Reichstag from a historical symbol of Germany's defeat and division to an architectural beacon for twenty-first century democracy, as can be seen in this generously illustrated book. This book introduces readers to one of Europe's iconic buildings and documents its rehabilitation by Foster + Partners through full-color photographs, plans, and sketches, along with informative essays. The new Reichstag's cutting-edge and environmentally sustainable features; the preservation of its historic details; and the cupola's new identity as an urban landmark are all discussed in the book, confirming Foster's innovative vision. -- Book Description from Website
The Reichstag Graffiti = Die Reichstag-Graffiti by Norman Foster( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Reichstag, the walls speak. Covered in Russian graffiti written by victorious Soviet soldiers in 1945, they've remained silent, their words hidden for decades, until rediscovered by architect Norman Foster and his team, who began work on the building in 1995. Preserved by Foster as part of his concept of the Reichstag as a "living museum" of German history, these anti-German scribblings remain a hotly debated subject. Some charge that the graffiti is morally offensive and masochistic, while others argue that its presence indicates a brave determination not to forget the tragedies of the past. Accompanying essays consider the graffiti as a monument to the individual and offer an historical account of the Battle of Berlin through the eyes of Red Army soldiers as they approached their ultimate goal, the Reichstag
Carré d'art, Nîmes : Foster + Partners by Norman Foster( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and French and held by 120 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
The Brits who built the modern world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Overzicht met foto's, plattegronden en korte hoofdstukken over het werk van de Britse architect (geb. 1935)
The Brits who built the modern world( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 56 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
