AV Projects 099: Foster + Partners
Publisher: Avisa, ISBN: 1697493X, Format: Softcover magazine, 240 x 300mm, 80pp, Spanish/English
'AV Proyectos 99' devotes its dossier to Foster + Partners, covering the latest proposals the British office is now developing in different countries, which all focus on the search for sustainability and in the commitment with the future of the environment. The competition section features the winning project, by Carmody Groarke, and the four finalists in the call to extend the Design Museum Gent. The chapter after it includes seven buildings constructed in stone, and that show the qualities of an ancestral material whose expressive potential, together with its durability, strength, thermal inertia, and sustainability have turned it into one of the most highly valued among architects.
