Norman Foster. Common futures

Fundación Telefónica, Norman Foster Foundation


The exhibition titled “Norman Foster. Common futures” seeks to popularize the architect’s work and his vision of the future among a wide audience while revealing his sources of inspiration. The exhibition focuses on the continuities in Foster’s work and confirms how the future and the past can inspire the present.

In the twelve sections of the exhibition, we can run through Foster’s ideas on different topics of social interest, following an itinerary which begins with a reflection on the past and ends with the future, taking in culture, work, well-being and sustainability. Each section presents a recent project together with another from his initial period, demonstrating the continuity of these features in his architecture, constantly focused on the prefiguration of a common future.
