Norman Foster

“I believe,” explains Sir Norman Foster, “that the best architecture comes
from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise a building: the structure
that holds it up; the services that allow it to work; the ecology of the building
— whether it is naturally ventilated, whether you can open the windows, the
quality of light; the materials used, their mass or their lightness; the character of
the spaces; the symbolism of the form; the relationship of the building to the
skyline or the streetscape; and the way in which the building signals its presence
in the city or the countryside. I think that holds true whether you are creating a
landmark or deferring to a historic setting. Successful architecture addresses all
these things and many more
