Idea Code 13389


For Norman Foster, the drawing is a significant analytical and working tool, a way of relating to reality and an expression of his belief that design can improve our environment and quality of life. Within this multimedia publication are emblematic projects such as the Hearst Building in New York, the Beijing Airport and 30 St Mary Axe in London. Arranged chronologically, the drawings offer a concise history of work by Foster spanning 50 years and supplement a DVD of the award-winning documentary film directed by Norberto López Amado and Carlos Carcas, plus a second DVD with more than 100 minutes of interviews and images and an audio CD of the film’s original soundtrack.
