Foster + Partners is one of the most innovative architecture and integrated design practices in the world. Over the past four decades the practice has pioneered a sustainable approach to architecture through a strikingly wide range of work, from urban masterplans, public infrastructure, airports, civic and cultural buildings, offices and workplaces to private houses and product design. Based in London, with offices worldwide, the practice has an international reputation, with buildings in six continents.

Foster + Partners是一家英国国际建筑和综合设计工作室,是世界上最知名最具创新的建筑事务所之一,创始人是Norman Foster。在过去的四十年里,Foster + Partners的设计范围包括城市规划、建筑、产品和展览等,其作品以“将高科技、生态学与本土文化结合”而著称。Foster + Partners设计和建造了许多知名的玻璃和钢结构的建筑。

It is conducting design projects in Wuhan in cooperation with WPDI, Wuhan planning and design institue. Many of the projects are located in the old city center. Therefore, great efforts were made to preserve heritage buildings, the local community and culture.


Big House is an art gallery and exhibition hall situated on the Yangtze river side of Wuchang, renovated from a historical building, designed by British design firm Hemmings and Berkley about 100 years ago.

Big House位于武汉临江大道76号,坐落在武昌最早叫“马路"的地方:一马路与四马路正中间。该建筑原为武昌第一纱厂办公楼,是一座共3层的砖混结构大楼,由英国景明洋行(Hemmings&Berkley)设计。

The booming city is striving to build a sustainable future without forgetting the past.
