Foster + Partners: Improving The Quality of Life in a City For All

Foster + Partners: Improving The Quality of Life in a City For All

Foster + Partners is a global studio for sustainable architecture, engineering, urbanism and industrial design, founded by Norman Foster in 1967. Since then, he, and the team around him, have established an international practice with a worldwide reputation. With offices across the globe, they work as a single studio that is both ethnically and culturally diverse. The principles of sustainability are integral to their work: designing buildings that run at a fraction of the current energy requirements, or urban quarters that can support thriving communities, improving the quality of life in a city for all. Check out a few projects below with us!

RCC Headquarters

Foster + Partners: Improving The Quality of Life in a City For All

The practice’s first office building in Russia, the RCC Headquarters in Ekaterinburg reimagines the conventional cellular office to set new standards in quality, comfort and flexibility. The 15-story building’s innovative modular office units are enveloped in an energy-efficient enclosure, which provides a distinctive symbol for the organization.

ICD Brookfield Place

ICD Brookfield Place is an office and retail development located in the heart of the Dubai International Financial Centre district (DIFC). The mixed-use development includes a 53-story tower featuring world-class workspaces, set within an urban setting that celebrates its location and makes a positive change to the area around it.

Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences

The Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is a pioneering research facility for the scientific exploration of the brain. Physically, the building acts as a gateway between the university campus and city – its dynamic social spaces and laboratory facilities are designed to attract exceptional scientists, as well as to foster an interest in the center’s research activities within the wider community.

Hankook Technoplex

Building on the successful partnership developed during the Hankook Technodome project – the company’s integrated R&D center in Daejeon – Foster + Partners was asked to design Hankook’s new headquarters in Pangyo, on the outskirts of Seoul. The new building embraces several themes that are symbolic of Hankook’s desire to create a dynamic office environment that supports flexible working styles, as the company looks towards the future. The building serves as a catalyst for change for the company’s ongoing efforts to inculcate a progressive corporate culture.

Apple Marina Bay Sands

Apple Marina Bay Sands is set to be a distinctive presence on the bay, with a 30-meter diameter dome that is a contemporary interpretation of the geodesic dome, using minimal material to enclose the maximum space. Imagined as a clear bubble in the water, it references the sister pavilion through its materiality and site. It is fully glazed, with a black glass base, creating an island joined only by a small bridge.

House of Wisdom

Long considered primarily as repositories for books and periodicals, the role of libraries in the life of contemporary communities is set to be reimagined for the 21st century. The House of Wisdom conceptualizes the library as a social hub for learning, supported by innovation and technology. Celebrating Sharjah as the 2019 UNESCO World Book Capital, the building creates a new publishing and research-based institution that seeks to be the catalyst for a new cultural quarter in the city.
