Scraphouse made an appearance on Inhabitat last June when it made its debut during World Environment Day 2005 on the lawn in front of the City Hall in San Francisco. A sort of 3-D collage of found objects — primarily scrap material destined for landfill and recycling plants — Scraphouse was assembled in six short weeks.
Although no remnants of the building remain on the City Hall lawn, Scraphouse can be seen from conception to completion in print, online, and — as of tonight — on TV. Anna Fitch and her team have produced a 46-minute fast-paced documentary of the 6-week build blitz, which premiers today on the National Geographic Channel at 10pm (ET). Be sure to check your local listings for any time changes.
Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker, Anna Fitch, conceived the project with the help of Public Architecture in collaboration with a fantastic group of architects, landscape architects, lighting specialists, and metal fabricators.
