How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster? Reviews
The title of this movie was a little ‚??off-putting‚??/awkward to me, but it is an excerpt from a conversation between Buckminster Fuller and Foster. Foster‚??s pragmatic approach to Fuller‚??s design concepts bring them to the world in a beautiful fashion. Like Fuller, Foster‚??s projects are not limited to the standard architectural schema.
The flow of the movie is somewhat mysterious (an allegory of his life) and prompted me to watch it twice. I had seen most of Foster work, as has anyone who watches the history channel, but never strung it together as the works flowing from one man. The second time watching it I wished many of the shots were longer and more detailed.
Chronicling his early career, the most interesting facet was that he needed to take his work on the world stage to be able to be a success in his home of Great Britain.
