WHAT COULD FOSTER DO FOR SUSTAINABILITY?
I was interested to see that Norman Foster is the Most Admired Living Architect, as voted for by AJ readers, with a massive 21 per cent of the vote (AJ 04.05.06).
I also admire his work and, along with many, enjoy the changes he has made to our city skylines, universities and schools.
Following his acceptance of the 'recognition from (his) peers', I wonder if he would be willing to share some advice and wisdom of how sustainable design thought has informed his buildings and whether this has been a key part of his success as an architect.
I'm sure his comments on sustainability would offer inspiration and help us all in the drive towards more sustainable building design.
