Norman Foster’s routes tie back to his time studying with Bucky Fuller, one of the greatest engineering minds ever. Foster’s desings have a decidedly engineering feel to them, but his understanding and sensitivity to nature within his designs is what sets him apart. High performance paired with green spaces integrated within a project are difficult to master, technology and nature usually are, but as Foster states, it is the duty of architects to accomplish just that.
