How Much Does Your Building Weight, Mr. Foster?

The critical consensus

Veers too close to hagiography, although it's visually arresting enough to carry you through sagging in the narrative.

A handsome portrait of one of the most esteemed architects of the modern age: Norman Foster.

This movie makes his buildings look airily light: expressions of pure thought and design.

It’s easy to admire Foster, a 75-year-old man of action (skiing, cycling, flying) who’s still searching for fresh creative challenges.

[An] admiring, hugely enjoyable, largely uncritical documentary.

Philip French, The Observer, 30/01/2011

It's a bit patchy and chaotic, but there are some great stories from Foster and friends.

It’s all done, naturally, with exquisite taste.
