The ScrapHouse takes "green" design to the next level as Architects, Structural Engineers and Scrap Artists construct a new house in 30 days with junkyard materials. A National Geographic September premiere, the idea of ScrapHouse was conceived by San Francisco's Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker, Anna Fitch.

The premise: is it possible to build and furnish a new house out of garbage in just four weeks? And not just any house, but one that is sturdy, spacious and stylish? A team of architects, structural engineers and scrap artists in San Francisco accepts a nearly impossible challenge: in only one month, turn a few tons of trash into an architectural marvel.

Along the way, the team must fight to overcome extraordinary problems: on-site confusion, staffing shortages, a lack of materials, internal bickering and that ominous completion deadline. But failure is ultimately not an option. The team devises a very ambitious and bold design - a spacious modern house of 1,000 square feet with 21-foot-high ceilings.

Socializing and gallery viewing at Varnish's beer, wine and saki bar at 7:00pm, film at 8pm.
