Foster had a little help from his friends

  • Comment

'Fostering City quality' (AJ 6.5.04) was a very interesting article. However, I would like to remind you that, although Norman deserves all the compliments on his achievements that are noted in the article, he himself will probably tell you he also owes them to quite a few young architects who had the privilege of working beside him.

They all contributed, in one way or the other, to the success of the practice. Some are still there, others have left to join practices such as Rogers or Grimshaw. Others, like myself, have simply gone out of the architectural world to explore other fields.
