For more than thirty years Ben Johnson has been documenting the work of one of today’s most acclaimed architects in photographs that have served as source material for his own neo-realist paintings. Included in this intimate volume are nearly all of Foster’s most celebrated projects, such the Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts, the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, the restoration of the Reichstag, Hong Kong and Beijing Airports; and the Great Court at the British Museum. Johnson’s images allow readers to explore the ineffable qualities of Foster’s architecture-his use of light and shade, innovative materials and attention to natural and manmade surroundings. Fans of Foster will find much to discover in this unique amalgam of architecture and art.
