Foster + Partners, Louisiana Exhibition

Foster + Partners, Louisiana Exhibition

The Architect's Studio – Norman Foster was the third in a series of exhibitions examining the design process and working environment of contemporary architects at Copenhagen's Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. The story of Foster's studio and the very special way it works, was the theme of this exhibition: the working process – the path from idea to realisation. The design process is explored through two buildings that were under construction at the time: the Swiss Re tower in the City of London and the Chesa Futura – a small apartment building in St Moritz in Switzerland. The exhibition graphics were designed by Thomas Manss & Company and the Danish artist Per Arnoldi.
