World’s premier architects

How Much Does Your Building Weigh Mr Foster: The film traces the rise of one of the world’s premier architects, Norman Foster, and his unending quest to improve the quality of life through design.

An interesting documentary about a man born from humble beginnings who (together with his associates) makes the urban world we live in more beautiful. Amazing shots showing building structures from great angles. I hadn’t realised his practice was responsible for the Millau Viaduct, a truly awesome structure. (I saw a programme about the building of it on Channel5 which was ace.) Norman Foster for those that aren’t familiar, is responsible for The Gherkin, in London. The documentary is a little long however, worth a watch. There is a fascinating segment at the end about the design and build of a sustainable city.
