    oh plur-lease MercoPress, try to get it right!

    He is either;
    Baron Foster of Thames Bank.
    Sir Norman (Foster).
    or, previously;
    Lord Foster, (he stepped down in 2010).
    or just,
    Norman Robert Foster, Baron Foster of Thames Bank, OM, HonFREng.

    He is never to be addressed as “Sir Foster”.

    oh my! one can not believe standards have slipped so much in recent years!

    *clutches pearls*
    *hoists bosom*
    *squints in disparagingly manner through pince-nez*

    Wait, so the ANGLOS insult, disparage, deride, contemn, and vituperate for the last two years against these Arabs for supposedly stealing the World Cup from them, pretending to take a noble stand against FIFA's corruption... yet now they'll take their money, thank you.

    Anglos will be anglos. As usual duplicitous and completely not to be believed in their fake indignation.

    England applied for the 2018 World Cup....... the one that Russia got and which is almost certain now to be boycotted by a large section of World Football.
    Brits are all looking forward to Qatar in the Winter of 2022.

    “master piece of the Qatar 2022 World Cup”
    and why the fuck this stadium is the “masterpiece” of dubai 2002?
    because it was designed by foster & partners?

    “sir” norman foster has also designed these masterpieces of crap: the city hall in london, the headquarters of banco de la ciudad in buenos aires, and the list goes on.
    but i have to admit that the aleph building in puerto madero is sehr gut!

    now, the problem with foster is that he is not too original, no?
    it seems his buildings are always very, very similar to the ones of other architects.
    the relatives of amancio williams and felix candela could testify that.

    Our resident architect has spoken. Unfortunately he has posted two “BLOGS” as proof of something or other. As we are serial far as Spanish jibber -jabber goes-we haven't a clue what he is on about and frankly don't care.

    When I was a Senior Executive at a major UK building products company I had the dubious pleasure of meeting this character over lunch in our boardroom.

    I have said enough. :o(

    the whole world knows that the EDIFICIO UIA designed by amancio williams in 1946 and the HSBC building designed by foster in...1979, are basically the same.

    how do you call that in english?

    I know this will come as a terrible shock to you, but Anglos aren't a monolithic bloc in which everybody thinks the same thing.

    @10..yes but these trolls have been told what to think and can't understand that we are free to make up our own minds.

    In English it would be classed as intellectual theft if it could be proven
    Robbery is the forceful extortion by threats , intimidation and physical violence of goods and property.
    You know, the Argentinian way of life.

    We have a right to be grumpy when we see the generation YOU represent.
