A Conversation for Norman Foster - Architect


Post 1


Sir Norman Foster
of a lower-middle class
brought up to a blue collar family
lived through poverty

won a design scholarship
Yale he went
The states for an exposure
to discover himself

met a person named
Richard Rogers
together they came
to set up Team 4
apart later
in pursue of own ideals
both set along river thames
in London, it is

drift with time
40 years later
an empire he build
an office of 800

world class and well known
of distinction in design
set the benchmark for all
in this century
that is

He remains there
at seventy-one
knighted to be a `Sir'
as the century's
most decorated architect

a middle-class person
which caste is he now?
which class is he in?
of a lower middle origin?
is he of high class now?
for he is after all
a knight in today's
United Kingdom...
