Projects Needed: Weather Channel Docu-series "Built to Last"
A production company is working on the pilot episode of the Weather Channel docu-series "Built to Last." Each program will showcase several residential homes that are built to withstand the forces of nature, whether it's a tornado proof home in the plains of Kansas or a fireproof home in the hills of Santa Barbara. Texas Society of Architects members should send completed examples to the AIA.
The shoots themselves would last about a day, or a day and a half during which a small film crew would film all aspects of the home, as well as speaking with the homeowners and/or architects, contractors, engineers, and anyone else involved in the project. This series will showcase the ingenuity and importance of protecting one's home from natural disasters, and the crucial role of the architect in that pursuit.
If you have completed examples, please send a brief description to Scott Frank in AIA Media Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org.
