The Art of Architecture: Foster + Partners
 
   
Start Date 26/09/2009
 
End Date 10/01/2010
 
Location Dallas 
 
Country United States 
 
Description Continuing its investigation of contemporary architecture, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas presents a retrospective of the work of Foster + Partners. Scheduled to coincide with the grand opening of the new, Foster-designed Winspear Opera House in the AT&T Center for Performing Arts, the exhibition explores Foster + Partners’ major architectural achievements over the past four decades.

Architectural models, along with drawings, renderings, photographs and videos, give insight into the formal and conceptual underpinnings of the practice’s work and provide a context for better understanding the new addition to the panoply of modernist architecture in Dallas.

“The Nasher is pleased to present an exhibition which showcases Foster + Partner’s greatest architectural works and explores the firm’s philosophy that the quality of surroundings has a direct influence on the quality of lives and the culture and climate of place,” said Jeremy Strick, Director of the Nasher Sculpture Center. “With the opening of the Foster-designed Winspear Opera House, Dallas will be the only city in the world that has four buildings within one contiguous block designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winners, including the Renzo Piano-designed Nasher Sculpture Center.”
