Norman Foster

Norman Foster of Foster and Partners b. 01.06.1935.

Foster is a leading figure of contemporary architecture whose work is noticeable throughout London. Buildings include the gherkin, the London City hall and a wonderful roof  that frames the great court of the British museum excellently.

Foster has also designed buildings farther afield. Two that I have been lucky enough to see are the HSBC Building in Hong Kong and a contemporary roof structure that was added to the Reichstag building in Berlin after fire destroyed part of the original building.
