Architecture School - Ep 1 Part 1

This is a really good show that shows architectural students trying to bridge architecutral design with community wants and needs. After watching a few episodes of seeing these architects deal with the community you can really see the importance of needing a community planner.

Even though architects build spaces for people they may not be the best people to deal with the sensitivies of peoples needs. The built environment can often trump the dynamics of the social environment in their minds which can often lead to conflict and disapproval.

But this is a great show, that shows the challenges of building in the urban environment.
