Taking its name from a question that Buckminster Fuller asked the architect about his Sainsbury Centre at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom, this documentary traces the rise of Britain’s leading architect, Norman Foster. The film explores the passions and influences of this 76-year-old award-winning architect, whose buildings include some of today’s most stunning and innovative architectural structures: the Beijing airport, the Hearst building in New York, the remodeled Reichstag in Berlin and the world’s tallest bridge in Millau, France.

Directed by Carlos Carcas and Norberto López Amado.
