Bird’s Nest

With the lofty goal of both attempting to understand the methods of Herzog & De Meuron and their design process, AND explore the ‘intentions, expectations and strategies’ of the Chinese government, Bird’s Nest: Herzog & De Meuron in China definitely sounds like a film worth checking out [when it drops].

Architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron are literally building bridges between two cultures, two architectural traditions, and two political systems. Their work doesn’t simply enhance China’s great international debut, but serves the everyday needs of the Chinese population.

Unfortunately, it’s going straight to DVD [maybe we can organize some viewings somehow? Think about it ninjas - got any connects?] – and should be released this summer. Well be sure to give the massive a heads-up a week or so in advance.
