Mr Foster


Directed by Norberto Lopez Amado and Carlos Carcas

80 min. | 2012 | UK/Spain

Meet Norman Foster, a world premier British architect who strives to improve quality of life through design. Catapulting from a humble upbringing to the global architecture scene, Foster has designed emblematic projects such as the tallest bridge in the world, the Hearst Building in New York, and the world’s largest building—the Beijing Airport. Articulate and thoughtful, Foster reveals his intriguing life story, career influences, and sources of inspiration in a documentary as sleek and graceful as his architecture.
