Scraphouse Main [1]

Scraphouse [2] 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 [2] was assembled in six short weeks.

Although no remnants of the building remain on the City Hall lawn, Scraphouse [2] 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 [3] 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 [4] in collaboration with a fantastic group of architects, landscape architects, lighting specialists, and metal fabricators.
