Foster 40 celebrates 40 years of Foster + Partners architecture and ideas. It examines 40 landmark projects, together with 40 of the themes that have consistently underpinned the practices work. Echoing the spirit of the architecture itself, the book is designed around a unique and inventive format which allows the content to be accessed interactively. 40 Projects and 40 Themes can be read separately, or they can be cross-referenced using the links at the bottom and top of each spread. A project may illustrate several themes; and once referenced a theme will suggest links to other projects, inviting the reader to explore and make connections back and forward between the two.
