Vanessa Brunner added this to Movie: How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?
Directed by Spanish documentary filmmakers Norberto López Amado and Carlos Carcas, the film was produced by Antonio Sanz and Elena Ochoa. Although creating a film on Foster was something the directors and producers had discussed over the course of several years, it didn't quite click until they went on a visit to Foster's newly constructed Beijing Airport — what is currently the largest building in the world. The filmmakers meshed with Foster and his team, and decided that creating this film was a must. "I'm not an architect, nor do I consider myself someone who knows about architecture," says Carcas. "So for me, the main question in this film is 'Why should I care about architecture, and what does it matter to me?'"Above: The Millau Bridge in Southern France
