KieranTimberlake, an architectural firm based in Philadelphia, is a recognized leader of the "green" architecture movement in the U.S. As this film illustrates, its founders Stephen Kieran and James Timberlake have been developing innovative means to combine sustainable design principles with off-site construction for the mass customization of houses. The firm's Loblolly House, built in the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland in 2007, and the Cellophane House, a specially-commissioned design executed for an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in 2008, serve as outstanding examples of the firm's research-based approach. The film takes the viewer on a tour of the small, elegant Loblolly house, named for the pines indigenous to the area, and demonstrates how the architects employed an aluminum scaffold system, off-site fabricated floor and ceiling panels (called 'smart' cartridges) to distribute radiant heating, water, ventilation, and electricity throughout the house. With the five-story 1,800 square foot Cellophane House, erected for The Museum of Modern Art's exhibition Home Delivery: fabricating the modern dwelling, the architects incorporated lessons learned from the Loblolly House combined with SmartWrap, an energy gathering building envelope for a 2003 exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. As the film makes clear, the Cellophane House's aluminum-frame structure and glass panels snap in place, so that welding and sealing are not needed. On top of that, the house is constructed with 82 percent recyclable materials, LED lighting, and photovoltaic cells for energy supply. Producer: Edgar B. Howard. Director: Tom Piper.

Abu Dhabi is the biggest of the United Arab Emirates sitting in the heart of the oil rich Persian Gulf. Oil represents more than two thirds of this city state's economy and with such easy access to all that black gold, the citizens of Abu Dhabi have become one of the most polluting on earth. Cheap fuel means big cars, year round air conditioning and sweet water, which comes from an energy intensive desalination process. And yet Abu Dhabi recently announced one of the most ambitious development projects in the world. The construction of Masdar, the world's first zero carbon, zero waste, car free city. The 22 billion dollar project when it's finished in 2016, will be home to 40 000 people, an academic institute, a manufacturing hub for solar power and desalination, have no greenhouse gas emissions, no waste and a personal transport system instead of cars. Great Idea, but can it work? The team has just 18 months to get the first phase out of the ground (the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology). And in the Middle East they don't do things by halves. It's not only the building that must be green, but the process itself, 'uilding the building'. This film follows the trials and tribulations of Sanad, Meg, Chris and Samir as they struggle to build the prototype city on time and on budget in Abu Dhabi's punishing heat.
