About this talk

Running time: 24 minutes

Norman Foster is one of the world's pre-eminent architects. With his practice Foster + Partners, Lord Foster has designed every possible building type and worked in every corner of the globe, picking up numerous awards and accolades along the way.

For his recently completed winery for Chateau Margaux, Lord Foster drew on the local vernacular to create a different addition to the famous estate. In this talk he discusses why he became so personally involved with the project, about combining recycled materials with cutting edge technology, and his client's delight at the new building's understated boldness.

This is the third of Foster's talks; in 2001 he gave us Exploring The City, and from 1979 we have More With Less.

Recorded at Foster + Partners' London office in September 2015.
