Friends get a glimpse into the creative process of Foster + Partners in this special evening hosted by Head of Design and Royal Academician, Spencer de Grey.
Foster + Partners is a global practice with a worldwide reputation for sustainable architecture, urbanism and design, founded by Norman Foster RA in 1967. Boasting a unique and integrated design approach where structural and environmental engineers work alongside the architects to develop fully integrated design solutions. Examples of their work include: the Sackler Wing of the RA, the Great Court of the British Museum, the plinth for Martyrs (an installation by Bill Viola at St Pauls Cathedral), Stansted Airport, Bloomberg HQ and the Gherkin in London. Further afield they are known for the Sage Gateshead, the Reichstag in Berlin, the Millau viaduct and Apple Park in California.
The London Studio of Foster + Partners on the banks of the Thames is a pioneering example of a mixed-use building, with the studio occupying the lower three levels and apartments located on the upper floors.The large main studio brings together a wide range of design disciplines alongside the architects and engineers where cross-fertilisation ensures innovative solutions for our built environment.
