It’s archiporn, basically.

But, it draws you in with your Frank Gehry self! Only this doc is about architect Norman Foster called “How Much Does your Building Weigh, Mr Foster?” (Yes, that’s his bridge.) The music is about as epic, deep and ethereal than I can recall for a doc, but the intriguing point of the piece is the idea that “In the very near future, the majority of mankind will abandon the countryside and live entirely in cities.” When you watch the clips through that perspective, you get the sense that (no pun intended), the landscape in a larger sense will become altered as the shape of cities takes on a new role.

(Via C-Monster.)

If that's archi-porn, then I'm archi-gay. (Or th'other way 'round; no sexual politics intended.) Beautiful buildings but the loving cinematography put me to sleep.
