In Norman Foster Exhibit, you can discover the vision of the future, of the British architect and at the same time his sources of inspiration. Conformed by twelve expository sections that review their main ideas on different topics of social interest, the exhibition will follow an itinerary that begins with the reflection on the past and ends with the future passing through culture, work, welfare or sustainability. Each section contrasts a recent project with another of its first stage, highlighting the continuity of these features in its architecture. The main objective of the exhibition project is to show that Foster’s work recovers the memory of the past and anticipates the needs of the future while remaining based on the demands and urgencies of the present.
