Episode Summary

EDIT
Pritzker Prize, AIA Gold Medal Foster + Partners http://www.fosterandpartners.com Norman Foster is undoubtedly one of the most influential architects of our time. Since establishing his award-winning practice in 1967 - originally titled Foster Associates - the Pritzker Prize laureate has grown Foster + Partners into an international powerhouse, with project offices in more than twenty countries. The Manchester native has become known for contributing well-designed, imaginative solutions to complex design problems, while remaining sensitive to the environment and embracing the highest technological standards. His diverse portfolio ranges from urban masterplans, public infrastructure, airports, civic and cultural buildings, offices and workplaces to private houses and product design. As stated in the 1999 Pritzker Jury Citation, “Sir Norman Foster's pursuit of the art and science of architecture has resulted in one building triumph after another, each one in its own way, unique.” Foster + Partners has received nearly 500 awards and citations for excellence and has won more than 86 national and international competitions. Some of Foster’s greatest achievements include receiving the 21st Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1999, the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal for Architecture (1994), the Royal Gold Medal for Architecture (1983), and the Gold Medal of the French Academy of Architecture (1991). In 1990 he was granted a Knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honors, and in 1999 was honored with a Life Peerage, becoming The Lord Foster of Thames Bank.moreless
