The airport in Hongkong, the Gherkin in London, the viaduct in Millau – all of these constructions bear the mark of the most significant architect of the present: Norman Foster. The Brit is considered to be the master of modern high-tech architecture and has more recently been recognised for his innovative reconstructions of historical buildings. This portrayal highlights the artistic development and personality of the frequently honoured architect and designer. In his London office and on the road, Foster elucidates legendary projects of the 1980s and 90s such as the Reichstag building in Berlin, the Carré d’Art in Nîmes or the television tower in Santiago de Compostela.

Director: Mark Kidel

"Diese Dokumentation aus dem Jahr 1995 funktioniert nach wie vor als Momentaufnahme. Darüber hinaus schafft es diese elegant gestaltete Dokumentation, den Menschen Norman Foster zu erfassen, seine Leidenschaft zu porträtieren und seine Philosophie zu erläutern." Peter Osteried,, 30.04.2009
