This book offers a critique of Foster + Partners’ work in the context of historic structures or sensitive historical locations.

Foster + Partners’ work is rooted in a belief that there is no conflict between a passion for structures from the past and anticipation of the architecture of the future: old and new can coexist with integrity and without apology. Per Norman Foster, “Each age produces its own vocabulary. . . . In buildings that have evolved over time the original layers of history can often be understood more readily when seen alongside the new.” Critic Paul Goldberger explores the practice’s approach to “building with history,” culminating with the remodeling of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Complementing the study is a pictorial record of projects that illustrate different strands of Foster + Partners’ work in this field, photographed by the distinguished Richard Bryant and the late Mark Fiennes.

Norman Foster is the Founder and Chairman of Foster + Partners, one of the most respected international architectural practices. He was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1999 and the Praemium Imperiale in 2002; and in 2009 he became the twenty-ninth laureate of the Prince of Asturias Award for Arts. He was granted a knightood in 1990 and was appointed to the Order of Merit in 1997.
