Architectures for different functions and countries, on different scales, will be presented divided by theme: infrastructures, sustainability, skyscrapers, urban planning projects, history and culture, in a trip through time to discover the modus operandi of this important architectural practice through the 227 projects on exhibit, starting with projects dated 1967: the year of the studio’s foundation as Foster Associates. Visitors will discover how an architectural practice really works, from the initial meeting with the customer to the subsequent stages in planning and constructing the building.
