Building Sustainable Communities

I’ve been sick at home for the last two days, and watching the PBS series e2: the economies of being environmentally conscious. It’s an ongoing documentary series about solutions to current environmental problems. We borrowed it from the library. I couldn’t imagine a documentary series for me, discussing issues of cities, architecture, sustainable communities and environmental issues. Plus, it’s beautifully produced.

Anyways, I just finished the episode “Green for All” which follows architect and activist Sergio Palleroni as he continues his mission to provide design solutions to humanitarian crisis regions. I’ve read a bit about Palleroni and the BaSiC Initiative previously. This documentary does a great job to highlight his aim to inspire architects to be socially responsible; working in under-served communities to create cool and functional buildings in a sustainable way.
