Building the Future on Discovery Channel


William Gibson famously said "The future is here, its just not evenly distributed." The Discovery Channel tries to pull it all together with its new show, Building the Future, in four episodes covering issues that we cover: The energy solution, 21st century shelter, Surviving climate change and the quest for water. From the photo gallery, it appears to favour megaprojects and dramatic solutions; the video gallery also shows some grand schemes, like Roger Davey's solar tower proposed for Australia, beautifully modelled and montaged with Davey flying around it in a balloon. Its probably worth watching just for scenes like this. Energy and Shelter on Sunday June 10; (schedule here) ::Discovery Channel
