Norman Foster – Trajectory
His trajectory has inspired Colección Interiorismo to create a design with identity in the residential and corporative fields; and as a tribute to his track; we will remember three of his most emblematic works:
Torre Swiss Re, London
Designed by Norman Foster with Ken Shuttleworth, it is a skyscraper of 180 meters of height, ubicated in the financial district of London; it is totally avant-garde with a curved structure and covered with crystal, and is one of the most emblematic buildings of the British city.
City Hall, London
Created in the year 2002, it is a building with a dynamic form and a curved structure, which was also designed to respect the functionality and sustainability, thanks to its transparency that reduces the light consumption.
Torre Hearst, New York
Constructed in a 1928, it is a tower of 46 floors and 182 meters of height, of which by the way, Norman Foster conserved the front.
It was the first skyscraper built after the September 11 attacks, and it´s the first one considered as a “green skyscraper”; in its construction it was used an 80% of recycled iron and it consumes less than the 25% percent of energy than the average buildings.
As an architect you design for the present,
as a consequence of the past,
and for a future that it´s essentialy unknown.
