The original six-part series E² DESIGN explores the vitality of the environment through eco-friendly architecture. Narrated by Brad Pitt, the series introduces us to the inventive leaders and technologies driving sustainable practices worldwide in the design of buildings where we live, work, and play. E2 DESIGN challenges us to live smarter and greener, and with the future in mind.

The Green Apple: demonstrates how the ubiquitous skyscraper can surprisingly be a model of environmental responsibility.

Green for All - follows architect and activist Sergio Palleroni as he continues his mission to provide design solutions to humanitarian crisis regions.

The Green Machine - follows Mayor Richard M. Daley as he strives to make Chicago “the greenest city in America.”

Gray to Green - takes the notion of the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) to grand proportions by turning Boston’s “Big Dig” waste into spectacular residential design.

China: from Red to Green? - depicts a country at its tipping point and finds a sustainable solution in Steven Holl’s Beijing project.

Deeper Shades of Green - presents some of the most remarkable visionaries who are changing the face of architecture and environmentalism: Ken Yeang, Werner Sobek and William McDonough.
