Foster to Move to Switzerland

Lord Norman Foster will be moving his family from London to an 18th-century classical-style chateau in the hills of Switzerland... Having made his name and an estimated £250m fortune with bold designs of glass and steel, he is moving to Switzerland “for lifestyle reasons” and for the “incredible countryside”.

Foster, 72, who also designed Stansted airport and the “wobbly” millennium bridge, amassed much of his wealth from public building projects funded by the British taxpayer. Accordingly, peers have demanded that he reveal whether he will pay taxes in Britain.

He intends to oversee his global practice from the chateau and is not planning to retire.
