Green Planet Films presents SCRAPHOUSE: San Francisco.
A free ONLINE streaming video event in association with SF Environment, spotlighting San Francisco's new Universal Recycling and Composting Ordinance.
Enter a CONTEST to win a NatureMill in-home composter (valued at $400).
Watch the Scraphouse ONLINE as it was built in San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza for World Environment Day 2005.
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 as they face their challenge: is it possible to build and furnish a new architectural marvel out of garbage in just four weeks?
And not just any house, but one that is sturdy, spacious and stylish?
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.
