Design | e2 - Season 1 DVD
Design | e2 (The Economies of Being Environmentally conscious) is an original six-part series that explores the vitality of the environment through eco-friendly architecture. Traversing the globe, the series chronicles important stories of green architecture as they exist in New York, Chicago, China, and into the future. Narrated by Brad Pitt and masterfully shot in high-definition, the series introduces us to the inventive leaders and technologies driving sustainable practices worldwide in the design of buildings where we live, work, and play. Design | e2 challenges us to live smarter, live greener and live with the future in mind. The stories include:
The Green Apple , which demonstrates how the ubiquitous skyscraper can surprisingly be a model of environmental responsibility.
Green for All follows architect and activist Sergio Palleroni as he continues his mission to provide design solutions to humanitarian crisis regions.
Green Machine follows Mayor Richard M. Daley as he strives to make Chicago "the greenest city in America."
Gray to Green takes the notion of the three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) to grand proportions by turning Bostons "Big Dig" waste into spectacular residential design.
China: from Red to Green? depicts a country at its tipping point and finds a sustainable solution in Steven Holls Beijing project.
Deeper Shades of Green presents some of the most remarkable visionaries who are changing the face of architecture and environmentalism: Ken Yeang, Werner Sobek and William McDonough.
