The Norman Foster Foundation is unique in the ability to link its mission and educational programme to the execution of live projects by an in-house design team. Most assignments are developed for like-minded foundations and philanthropic institutions. Because of its not-for-profit status, the Norman Foster Foundation can deliver a professional service with an added benefit-in-kind.
The Foundation can also couple workshops with scholars and mentors to act as a research arm of the industry. The consultancy team within the Foundation can service the workshops and further develop technical studies.
The Norman Foster Foundation is collaborating with Mr. Wole Osinupebi and Nigerian partners to develop a pilot scheme in Nigeria with the potential to fulfil the need to build rapidly and locally schools across the country.
