“All within the context of a sustainable agenda – the works on display highlight the incredible diversity of the practice’s work.” says Foster + Partners. “The exhibition is also an opportunity to learn more about projects around the world, from the Millau Viaduct in France, one of the world’s tallest road bridges and London’s ecological skyscraper, 30 St Mary Axe, the so-called ‘Gherkin’, to Beijing International Airport, one of the world’s largest buildings.”

Visitors to the exhibition, at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) from April 4 to June 29, 2014, will learn more about the integrated design process, in which architects, engineers and specialist in-house teams work closely alongside each other; the principles of sustainability that underpin every project; as well as the use of different tools and technology.

“While the computer has revolutionised the way designers work, the language of drawing and model making still play an important role. Through sketches, models, films, animations and a special exhibit exploring the process from first client meeting to completed building and post-occupancy studies, ‘Foster + Partners: the Art of Architecture’ will offer a unique insight into the workings of the studio.”
