Lord Norman Foster is allowing a glimpse into his personal life with an official Instagram account.
The 81-year-old posted the first photo to his @officialnormanfoster page five weeks ago, and has since offered a look into his day-to-day activities, including site visits.
There is even a picture of him cycling down the ramp of his dome at the Reichstag in Berlin
The photos reveal a more playful side to the architect, who is a keen cross-country skier and has a chalet in St Moritz that he designed himself.
Foster said that one of the reasons for starting it was to expose those pretending to be him. A quick Instagram search threw up three imposters.
“I would like to let you know that I have started a new Instagram page under the name ‘officialnormanfoster’,” he said. “This is because there have been several fake accounts posing as me.”
