“How much does your building weigh, Mr. Foster?” is freaking brilliant

If you love creativity, if you love culture, if you love intelligence, if you love life, you will probably love this documentary. Oh, and the architecture is exquisite too. Thank you Norman Foster.

Later, on 2/12/2013 …

I’ve watched this three times now. For me, it’s an astonishing, beautiful film.

It’s well-crafted, well-written, well-edited, well-photographed and well-narrated. You get a sense of Norman, and the arc of his career. But it’s more than just about an architect. It’s about being a human being. And it’s about humans working together.

The icing on the cake is the music. This wonderful original score, written by Joan Valent, is integrated throughout the film. But his music near the end, that carries through the credits, had me in tears.
