Genius, rebel, obsessive - just a few adjectives used to describe Norman Foster, one of the world's leading architects and a foremost voice on the future of design.

Following Foster on his tireless quest to improve the quality of life through design, HOW MUCH DOES YOUR BUILDING WEIGH, MR FOSTER? looks at some of the world's most iconic constructions, from Beijing Airport to the Reichstag and the Hearst Building in New York.
