The Engineering Club Film Night - How much does your building weigh Mr. Foster? (2010)


This award winning Arts Commissioners documentary traces the rise Norman Foster and details some of his well known designs.

Portrayed are emblematic projects such as the largest building in the world, Beijing Airport, the Reichstag, the Hearst Building in New York and works such as the tallest bridge ever in Millau France. In the very near future, the majority of mankind will abandon the countryside and live entirely in cities. Foster offers some striking solutions to the problems that this historic event will create. Architecture comes alive. Fosters projects are photographed in a cinematic style that seeks to bring the spectacular nature of their size and scale to the big screen.
