How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?

A documentary about reknowned architect British architect, Norman Foster, ”How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?," premiered last year at the Berlin Film Festival. According to the film’s director, Carlos Carcas, “The first reason for making the film was to tell the story of a man whose vision and design can be seen all over the world. To me, his personal story is an inspiring example of someone who has risen from a modest, working-class family to the highest level of success through pure effort, will and risk-taking. The other reason for making the film was to try to communicate to a broad audience why architecture matters.”
