Green Builders ~ Eco-Design for Regeneration!

I just for the first time caught Green Builders playing on NH PBS!
"A quiet green revolution in the building world is evolving, and a first wave of innovative green design projects large and small has already hit the ground. Green Builders, a one-hour high-definition special, profiles a cast of green-building pioneers who have taken the leap into making their part of the “built environment” a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly place."
The show features a great set of builders and live case studies, including the Willow School, a paragon of going Beyond Sustainability and towards Regeneration. In ten years it won't be called Green Architecture -- it'll be called just Architecture. The owner-developer-builder focus will have shifted to lifecycle cost, not merely first-cost of buildings. And people will realize that Going Green is not only ecologically sustainable, but economically advantageous and aesthetically vital! The whole show is online...
