‘Foster + Partners: The Art of Architecture’ will be staged at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) from April to June 2014. The touring exhibition is the first survey of the practice’s work in Thailand and follows critically acclaimed shows in China and Malaysia.
Foster + Partners, one of the most innovative architectural practices in the world today, led by Founder and Chairman Norman Foster, is based in London with project offices worldwide. Over the past four decades the practice has pioneered a sustainable approach to architecture and ecology through a strikingly wide range of work, from urban masterplans, public infrastructure, airports, civic and cultural buildings, offices and workplaces to private houses and product design.
Arranged around the themes of infrastructure, high-rise, urban design, history and culture – all within the context of a sustainable agenda – the works on display highlight the incredible diversity of the practice’s work. Details of new projects underway in Asia will be revealed.
