Reflections by Norman Foster

 

Norman Foster or Baron Foster of Thames Bank is an English architect, who has designed many famous modern architecture such as the Gherkin, Canary Wharf Station, HSBC building in Hong Kong, and many more around the world. 

"The book reflects his belief that architecture is essentially a social art - a necessity ad not a luxury - that it is generated by people's need, which are both spiritual and material. It has much to do with optimism, joy, and reassurance 0 of order in a disordered world; of privacy in the midst of many; of space in a crowded site; of light on a dull day. It is about quality: the quality of a space and the poetry of the light that models it."
