  • In this exclusive video interview filmed as part of our high-tech series, British architect Norman Foster explains how the banking headquarters he designed in the eighties became a symbol of his global brand.  Completed in 1985, the forty-four-storey skyscraper located near the harbour in central Hong Kong, China, was instrumental in establishing Foster Associates as an international practice. "Hong Kong bank was an extraordinary venture because it wasnt a building that could have been built in Hong Kong," Foster told Dezeen. "Hong Kong then did not have the technology, the fabrication" he explained. "It was truly a component building that was shipped from America, Japan, the UK, and assembled on site." Since the buildings elements were manufactured in different countries around the world, the project also had Foster travelling internationally as a result, which set a precedent for the future of the practice. "It was not just inventing a particular kind of tower that hadnt been done before," said Foster. "But it was also starting to reinforce and redesign [the practice] as a design organisation."

  • British architect Norman Foster recalls the challenges of designing the UKs pioneering high-tech art gallery, in this exclusive video interview filmed by Dezeen as part of our high-tech architecture series.  Located on the campus of the University of East Anglia in Norfolk, UK, the Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts is a 135-metre-long lattice steel structure with glazing at each end.  Completed in 1978, it was the first public building designed by Foster Associates – the architecture practice founded by Foster and his wife Wendy, which is now called Foster + Partners.  The gallery takes its name from the supermarket owners Robert and Lisa Sainsbury, who commissioned the building to house their extensive art collection alongside the University of East Anglias art faculty.  With works spanning 5,000 years of creative history and ranging from Henry Moore sculptures to cultural artefacts from Asia and Africa, the collection operates as both an ancillary to the art school and a public exhibition space.
