Come and enjoy the film: "How much does your building weigh Mr. Foster?"
This film traces the rise of one of the world's premier architects, Norman Foster and his unending quest to improve the quality of life through design. Portrayed are Foster's origins and how his dreams and influences inspired the design of emblematic projects such as the largest building in the world Beijing Airport, the Reichstag, the Hearst Building in New York and works such as the tallest bridge ever in Millau France. In the very near future, the majority of mankind will abandon the countryside and live entirely in cities. Foster offers some striking solutions to the problems that this historic event will create.

About the Festival:
The central theme around the Central Valley Architecture Festival is an exploration of the identity of our region; the relationship of architecture and design to our culture, landscape, climate and history.
The festival mission is three-fold:
1. Highlight existing relationships between the region and its architecture.
2. Create an ongoing dialogue to inform a distinct, regional, architectural identity.
3. Facilitate greater transparency with the public in how architects create our built environment and how it impacts their daily lives.
Festival Dates: October 12 to October 28, 2012 Location: Varies by event
Founded in 1942 the American Institute of Architects, Central Valley Chapter, represents the interests of the architectural profession in 17 Central Valley counties.
