Launch of the monograh ‘Norman Foster’ at Ivorypress


On Wednesday 27 September, Ivorypress held a conversation between architect Norman Foster and editor Phillip Jodidio on the occasion of the launch of the monograph NORMAN FOSTER, published by Taschen.

This is the first time Foster’s complete body of work has been published in one edition on such a grand scale. Produced by Taschen in collaboration with The Norman Foster Foundation and Foster + Partners, it gives a rare insight into the inner workings of his creative practice. It details his personal approach to his work, his inspirations, the link between art and architecture, and the significance and correlation between his passions, such as being an avid aviator, and his work.

This XXL monograph encompasses a lifetime of achievement and originality in two volumes. The first presents his architectural oeuvre and is filled with numerous unpublished images and sketches handpicked by Foster from his archives. Paired with nearly 1000 illustrations, the second book contains eight essays he wrote explaining his sources of inspiration.
