Looking for Information on Two Buildings

Hi
I am studying Building Surveying.
Iv been set an essay on 2 of Norman Fosters buildings.
McLaren Tech Centre and Willis Building Ipswich.

I need to find out about their construction, Architectural detail, Materials used in sub /super structure, user requirments, sustainability of it and its use, carbon footprint, and more.

Im wondering if anybody could advise on books or internet ref's.

Would it be worth buying any Norman Foster books??
Im not sure if they detail the things i need.

Any advise would be great.

Many Thanks

Rich
