Extreme Engineering Season 5 - Discovery

Discovery Channel – Extreme Engineering [Season 5]

English | Xvid | 2.03GB

Wikipedia - Engineering the Impossible was a ground-breaking 2-hour special, created and written by Alan Lindgren and produced by Powderhouse Productions for the Discovery Channel. It focused on three incredible, yet physically possible, engineering projects: the nine mile (14 km)-long Gibralter Bridge, the 170-story Millennium Tower and the 4000+-foot-long Freedom Ship. This program won the Beijing International Science Film Festival Silver Award, and earned Discovery’s second-highest, weeknight rating for 2002. After the success of this program, Discovery commissioned Powderhouse to produce the first season of the 10-part series, Extreme Engineering, whose episodes were written by Alan Lindgren, Ed Fields and several other Powderhouse writer-producers. Like Engineering the Impossible, the first season of Extreme Engineering focused on extreme projects of the future. Season 2 (and all seasons since) featured projects already in construction around the world.

Ten Houses 5 : Miller | Hull Partnership

Firm Profile: The Miller/Hull Partnership has built a reputation based on simple, elegant, and authentic designs. The Seattle firm, established in 1977, has pursued a rigorous logic in its design approach, which is based on the belief that architectural programs are best solved directly and efficiently. This rigor has resulted in a body of work that expresses powerful concepts in lyrical form.

Founding partners David Miller and Robert Hull, both raised in Washington State, have explored the development of two dominant themes in America's western regional architecture: the need to establish a defined place within the landscape, and the art of rational building. Their attitude toward building in the landscape takes advantage of a mutual inflection in which architecture and landscape seem to need each other for completion. In their residential architecture they attempt to capture the spirit and vitality of the American West by focusing on the tensions between nature and materiality, detail, and structure.

Miller/Hull has developed a community-based architecture for a variety of clients ranging from regional government agencies, colleges, and universities to private corporations and residential owners. The have been the recipient of more than seventy national and regional design awards during their first twenty years of practice. Their design work has been frequently published in international journals, has been featured in exhibitions--including two solo shows--and has been the subject of lectures given by the firm's Partners in the United States, Canada, Japan, and Italy.
