Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners

Foster+Partners è uno dei più innovativi studi di architettura e progettazione integrata del mondo. Dalla sua fondazione nel 1967, col nome di Foster Associates per poi prendere il nome attuale nel 1999, lo studio promuove un approccio sostenibile all’architettura, con una varietà di progetti molto ampia: pianificazione urbana, infrastrutture pubbliche, aeroporti, edifici civili e culturali, uffici e luoghi di lavoro, abitazioni private e product design. Lavorando insieme in modo creativo fin dall'inizio di un progetto, architetti e ingegneri uniscono le loro conoscenze per elaborare soluzioni integrate di design sostenibile. Foster+Partners e Molteni&C affrontano insieme ogni progetto in modo eclettico attraverso l’utilizzo di materiali e tecnologie innovative come per il tavolo Arc con basamento in cemento leggero, o per il tavolino Teso dove la tecnica di produzione è stata totalmente reinventata.
Con sede a Londra e uffici in tutto il mondo, lo studio ha una reputazione internazionale e progetti in sei continenti. Ha ricevuto più di 620 premi e citazioni per l’eccellenza nel design, e vinto oltre 100 concorsi nazionali e internazionali.
