Life at Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners' ambition is to be the world's leading architectural and design practice, investing in people, innovation and research with sustainability at its core. These principles underpin everything that we do, including the way we live and work on campus.

Located next to Battersea Park, our headquarters in London includes a library with over 50,000 publications, an archive, materials research centre, world-class modelshops, photography studios, a reprographics centre and on-site cafés. The cafés serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, alongside all day drinks and snacks, with special afternoon treats that are baked onsite everyday.

Our summer and winter parties are an integral part of our annual social calendar, alongside our annual Graduate Show, which provides recent graduates at Foster + Partners the opportunity to showcase their projects to Norman Foster and other senior colleagues. We also host our annual Partners’ Gathering, Riverside Festival as part of Open House, offering the public unique insights into the practice's work. There is a regular series of lectures and talks by a range of different speakers as well as social events for all.
