Though the name Foster+Partners is often associated with new constructions, much of its work is concerned with historic buildings, and the exhibition "Foster + Partners: Working with History" explores a number of different projects which reveal the studio’s sensitivity to the theme of historic sites, establishing an optimal balance between celebrating the power and culture of the existing structure and creation of the new.

The exhibition features text and images focusing on 19 international projects including the Berlin Reichstag and the British Museum in London, as well as Danish projects such as the unbuilt but much-debated plan for a Hotel in Tivoli gardens and the Elephant House which opened in Copenhagen zoo last year.
