Foster & Partners. Paragon. Sussex

Norman Foster,


Offices, Companies,

Half water, half land: the new McLaren science and technology centre is more than a huge space for research and production by one of the world's most famous automobile manufacturers, it is also a great work of architecture by London architect Norman Foster.

Foster & Partners. Paragon. Sussex The exterior of the building is characterised by large panels of glass that give the complex a light, airy feel, creating evocative light effects by night, thanks in part to the reflections from the nearby man-made lake.
The lake not only plays an important aesthetic role in defining the character of the Paragon, it is also an important source of energy, for it is used to convey wastewater from production which is then recycled using special heat pumps.
