HOW MUCH DOES YOUR BUILDING WEIGH, MR. FOSTER?
Design Schau! Film MCBW FORUM
Bernd-Eichinger-Platz 1, 80333 München
The film traces the rise of Sir Norman Foster from a Manchester working-class boy to one of the world’s premier architects. As an amateur pilot, Foster circles his most iconic buildings himself.
Behind the grand design, Foster always seeks the perfect technical solution and superior craftsmanship, which he plans down to the tiniest detail. His buildings, e.g. the Berlin Reichstag dome or 30 St Mary Ax in London, are architectural and technical masterpieces – visions of the future that stand out in the urban landscape like landmarks. The flight images offer new surprising perspectives.
