Bird's Nest - Herzog & de Meuron in China

Christoph Schaub, Michael Schindhelm, Switzerland, 2008o

vBack

Schaub and Schindhelm’s documentary follows two Swiss star architects on two very different projects: the national stadium for the Olympic summer games in Peking 2008 and a city area in the provincial town of Jinhua, China. 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. “Bird’s Nest” presents the Basle architects as they find solutions not in the comfort of an ivory tower but in encounters and friction on the ground.

Wie niemand sonst hatten Schaub und Schindhelm die Möglichkeit, das Entstehen dieses Bauwerks zu dokumentieren. Seiner Ideen und Grenzen nachzuspüren. Damit sind sie Chronisten nicht nur der Baugeschichte, sondern auch Drehbuchautoren einer Zäsur.
