With a career spanning continents and more than six decades, the work of renowned architect Norman Foster is nothing short of extraordinary. His creative innovation and holistic approach have made him one of the world's most influential and well-known architects. From the Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California, to the Reichstag in Berlin, the private courtyard of the British Museum in London to the Millau Viaduct in France, with his practice Foster + Partners, he has created celebrated landmarks that stand out for their inventive modernity and for what he calls "a sustainable approach to the design of the built environment."

This is the first time Foster's complete body of work has been published on such a large scale in a single edition. It provides a rare insight into the inner workings of his creative practice. It details his personal approach to his work, his inspirations, the connection between art and architecture, and the importance and correlation between his passions, such as being an avid aviator, and his work.

The XXL monograph covers a life of achievement and originality in two parts. The first volume presents his architectural oeuvre and is filled with numerous unpublished illustrations and sketches that Foster himself selected from his archives. In addition to nearly 1,000 illustrations, the second book includes eight essays he wrote to explain his sources of inspiration.

In addition to the 1999 Pritzker Prize, he won the Gold Medal for Architecture from the American Institute of Architects, the Royal Gold Medal for Architecture and the Gold Medal from the French Academy of Architecture. This is a stunning visual journey, not only through important buildings of our time, but also into the mind of a genius. Norman Foster sketched every page of this book and spent countless hours with the author and graphic designer to make it one of the most remarkable architectural books ever published.
