Project Description

Cool Spaces

Everyone loves cool buildings. But what really makes a building “cool”? The stakes are high when a client decides they want a signature building. All sorts of design challenges stand in the way. It’s the great buildings that meet the challenges and exceed expectations. They over-deliver. “Cool Spaces” is a show that profiles these great buildings, and shows you the design challenges behind the scenes. Cool Spaces! is a new television series on PBS that profiles the most provocative and innovative public space architecture in North America. Each hour-long episode is organized around a central theme- such as Spaces for Art, Sustainable and Green, and Performance and Entertainment- and will typically profile three buildings. For each building, we will discover why it was designed, how it was designed, and then visit and see for ourselves just what makes the building so cool.
