Lord Foster, the founding director of Foster+Partners, addresses the challenges of urbanisation and sustainability, looking at how a philosophy of ‘doing more with less’ can help generate design solutions. Using examples from around the world he discusses the nature of innovation and the power of advocacy.
This lecture formed part of Architecture on Stage, a programme of talks and debates curated by The Architecture Foundation in partnership with the Barbican Centre.
