The history of Western architecture can be viewed as a battle--namely, humanity vs. nature. But the green revolution has prompted new forms of building design that welcome in the natural world. This program surveys some of those advances and the architectural pioneers who create and implement them. Celebrated architect William McDonough explains his working methods and outlines designs for major projects--including the Ford Motor Company's eco-friendly Rouge Center renovation--while Leslie Hoffman, executive director of Earth Pledge, showcases a stunning example of a green urban home. Further commentary comes from EPA Energy Star program director Kathleen Hogan and Time magazine "Hero for the Planet" Dr. John Todd.
