* Architecture: Hearst Tower by Foster and Partners

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 4 February 2012

Architecture: Hearst Tower by Foster and Partners: “..The building’s symmetrically jagged silhouette is easily recognizable in its surroundings. The diagrid facade comprised of triangulated steel frame was designed to use 21% less steel than traditional buildings of it’s type. Also impressive is the statistic which states that 90% of the 10,480 tons of steel used is derived from recycled material..”  Iconic Foster and Partners..

Foster + Partners: The Souk, Abu Dhabi Central Market

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 8 May 2011

The Souk, Abu Dhabi Central Market by Foster + Partners

The Souk, Abu Dhabi Central Market by Foster + Partners

The ever active design blog Dezeen has published a post entitled “The Souk, Abu Dhabi Central Market by Foster + Partners“, looking at the recently opened, Norman Foster designed, pedestrian shopping center – a marvelously contemporary, yet sensibly historical offering including high-end boutiques, and independent local food and craft markets on the site of a historic city marketplace in Abu Dhabi.

Dezeen‘s article is full of wonderful photos showing courtyards, alleys, integrated balconies, stained-glass windows, columns and more that characterize this flexibly ventilated, seductive wood structure.
