The Great Court at the British Museum : Foster + Partners by Norman Foster ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 116 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

Carre d'art, Nîmes : Foster + Partners by Norman Foster ( Book )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and French and held by 107 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
