Born in Manchester
during the year of 1935. Attained a degree from Yale
in the USA
and is without question the most influential British architect
of the last 30 years. He is responsible for some of the most elegant modern
architecture , in existence across the world, these include; the Hong Kong Shanghai Bank, Stanstead airport, Bangkok airport, the Reichstag
and unfortunately the beautiful but dangerous millenium bridge in London
Again, I'm in danger of being radically opinionated again but here's the thing: I'm not a big creationist
, in fact completely the opposite, I'm a great believer in all of Richard Dawkins
ideas on evolution
and how it's responsible for how we came to be. Let's just imagine though, for fun, that creationists
are right, the universe
is here by design. I think it would be cool if due to some paradox of time the inhabitants of the universe
could elect a new maker, a new god , to redesign everything, from the smallest flower, to the blue whale. In which case my vote would go to Norman Foster.
I'm not saying the man is a god because........ well he's an architect but he deserves to be and it would be cool if he was.
