e² design

I've recently rediscovered a great series on PBS, e² design.

e² design is an ongoing PBS series about the pioneers and innovators in the field of sustainable architecture, and how their work is producing solutions to pressing environmental and social challenges. Now entering its third season, the series features compelling stories from around the globe: Beijing to Nova Scotia, Ladakh to New York. Each episode examines the built environment's effects — both ecological, and social — and the design innovations that can reduce buildings' contribution to climate change.

I originally saw the first season during lunch breaks with my co-workers and found them to be very interesting and a great resource. While exploring Hulu for the first time, I found 12 episodes to watch. They are now on their 3rd season and also have shows based on energy and transport. Wanna know the best part? e² design is narrated by Brad Pitt!
