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 doesnâ€™t simply enhance Chinaâ€™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.
