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.
