PBS thinks so… The company has just announced a new television series about environmentally-friendly architecture called Design: E2, which will be narrated by starchitecture buff Brad Pitt. Inhabitat’s favorite Architect for Humanity, Cameron Sinclair, is also involved with the show. The series will explore “the most complex issues facing our environment: from green architecture to water culture to organic farming to recycled clothes – challenging us to live smarter, greener lives.”… In HD no less!

The show is slated to air in June on PBS.

We have to admit that we have conflicting emotions over this news. On one hand, we think it’s high time that someone produce a serious TV show about sustainable design. And perhaps Brad’s love for sustainable architecture will be just the thing to inspire the public to get more involved in environmental design. On the other hand, we are a little suspicious of this trend of Hollywood celebs getting free passes to starchitect status. If all it takes is a famous name and a pretty face to become an architect, why are we wasting all these years slaving away in school!?

    Get over it. Just because he has a gorgeous face and is famous doesn´t mean
    that he too isn´t entitled to be autodidact at something like so many others.
    Its great that he has other interests and at least he uses his star status in an
    inspiring way. Lots of people have an architect, desinger or artist inside of them but when it comes
    to making blueprints call upon the experts. Thats the great things about creativity and aestetics
    nobody has the dubbs on it. Its free and in everyone who wants to tap into it. You are
    slaving away in school doing something interesting like architecture because you are the lucky ones!

    Huge life long Brad Pitt fan here, now even more so since these latest green endeavours!
