  • No British Architect has contributed so much to the profession than Sir Norman Foster. This also includes those employed by his firm,Architects and Technicians.
    Foster + Partners have designed buildings, bridges and pavilions in almost every Continent. Most or their inspirational works have been had in the Far East, Middle East, Europe and North America.Before the curtain closes and Sir Norman retires from from the Drawing board, I look forward to his very best in Architecure being built in Southern Africa-Zimbabwe.
