The Rt Hon the Lord Foster of Thames Bank, OM

ARCHITECT AND FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN FOSTER + PARTNERS

Norman Foster was raised in a working class family in Manchester, and was interested in design from a young age. He was inspired to pursue a career in architecture after his sketches of Manchunian buildings were noticed by a clerk at Manchester Town Hall. Foster is now the innovative architect behind London’s Gherkin and Berlin’s Reichstag. His large Battersea-based firm, Foster + Partners, which he founded in 1967, is a powerhouse designing typically progressive modern buildings worldwide and is behind the audacious proposal for a new “Thames Hub” airport for London. Since its creation, the practice has received more than 470 awards and citations for excellence and has won more than 86 national and international competitions.
