About Norman Foster
After graduating from Manchester University School of Architecture and City Planning in 1961 Norman Foster won a Henry Fellowship to Yale University, where he was a fellow of Jonathan Edwards College and gained a Master’s Degree in Architecture. In 1967 he established Foster Associates, which has since evolved as Foster + Partners, where he continues as Executive Chairman. He became the 21st Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate in 1999 and was awarded the Praemium Imperiale Award for Architecture in Tokyo in 2002. In 2009, he became the 29th laureate of the prestigious Prince of Asturias award for the Arts and was awarded the Knight Commander’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. In 1997 he was appointed by the Queen of the United Kingdom to the Order of Merit and in 1999 was honoured with a peerage, taking the title of Lord Foster of Thames Bank. Norman Foster is the President of the Norman Foster Foundation. The Norman Foster Foundation, based in Madrid and operating globally, promotes interdisciplinary thinking and research to help new generations of architects, designers and urbanists to anticipate the future.

About Tommaso Fantoni
Tommaso Fantoni established TOMOARCHITECTS in 2011, returning to Milan after a decade working in the London and New York offices of Foster + Partners. During his tenure with the firm, Fantoni participated in a number of international projects including several in New York City: Tower 2 at World Trade Center, the Sperone Westwater Gallery, and Lord Foster’s private residence. TOMOARCHITECTS was founded on the principles of sustainability and simplicity in contemporary architecture. The practice is multidisciplinary, and projects span from residential interiors to cultural institutions--most notably the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro in Milan--as well as product design presented at the Salone del Mobile.
