1junAll DayLord Norman Robert FosterBirthday


Event Details


Birthplace: Manchester, GB

Norman Foster loves books. From early on he’s been a bookworm. They were the only source that could appease his thirst for architecture. Decades later, he was assigned to renovate the New York Public Library. That was in 2008. The plan is still on the table, but construction work has not yet started. Still, Foster pursues the job with much blood, sweat and tears – especially because public libraries are of great importance for him. Moreover, his childhood library in Manchester and the New York Public Library were both due to the donations of one man: Andrew Carnegie. Photo: Andy Miah, license: CC BY-SA 2.0
