'This book is one of a series devoted to the work of Norman Foster and his practice Foster Associates. As Martin Pawley writes in his introduction, it is a body of work that has "... become part of the language of twentieth century architecture, for it is a language that cannot be spoken without them." Explored here, in Volume 2 of the series, re the buildings and projects carried out by the architect in the 1970s, the period during which he consolidated the talent shown in his earlier domestic work and rose to the threshold of international acclaim. This book, at a level of authentic detail unmatched in other publications devoted to his architecture, tells the full story behind the design and construction of Foster Associates' first major buildings — the Willis Faber Et Dumas insurance offices in Ipswich; the Sainsbury Centre forVisual Arts at the University of East Anglia, and the later Renault Distribution Centre in Swindon.'
