*POSTPONED* Film screening: How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?

Due to the weather, this event is being POSTPONED to Friday, February 12.

Watch an unprecedented exploration of British architect Norman Foster, whose constant quest to improve the quality of life through design offers striking solutions to humanity’s increasing urban demands. 

This screening will be held at 6:00 pm on Friday, February 5, at BSA Space (290 Congress Street, Boston) and is the fifth film in the 2015–2016 BSA Space Film Series documenting some of the ways that architecture and design can engage communities, inspire vision, and provoke change. Complimentary refreshments and popcorn will be served. All proceeds from the series support the BSA Foundation


Born in Manchester, England, on the wrong side of the tracks, Norman Foster rose from a humble working-class background to become one of the premier Modern architects of our time. Beautifully filmed in more than 10 countries and homing in on his most iconic works—including London’s Swiss Re Tower, New York City’s Hearst Building, Berlin’s Reichstag, Beijing Airport’s International Terminal, and the breathtaking Millau Viaduct over the Gorges du Tarn in France—How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster? features Norman Foster, Anthony Caro, Buckminster Fuller, Paul Goldberger, Cai Guo-Qiang, Anish Kapoor, Richard Long, Richard Rogers, Richard Serra, Deyan Sudjic, and more.
