I wrote about e2 about a year ago. e2, as you may remember, is the movement in architecture toward sustainable buildings, following up the somewhat romantic idea from the 1960s that a new architecture could lead to a new society (which led to people like Bernard Tschumi).

e2 has a new season:
We’ve just completed a second season of e2. “e² design” - narrated again by Brad Pitt - features Thom Mayne, architect of the San Francisco Federal Building; Enrique Peñalosa, the former mayor of Bogotá, Colombia; and Adriaan Geuze, lead architect of the Borneo Sporenburg development in Amsterdam. “e² energy” - narrated by Morgan Freeman - features Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner and founder of the Grameen Bank; Amory Lovins, founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute; and Dr. José Goldemberg, Brazil’s former secretary for the environment.

View full episodes for free at www.e2-series.com TODAY, Friday the 12th, and running continuously thru the week. A full schedule of Webcasts is available on the site. Also, you can link to our YouTube page to view trailers, podcasts and more.

We greatly welcome your feedback about the new episodes.

Not a big fan of Brad Pitt, but he was a tolerable narrator (as in not distracting, the way Leonardo Di Caprio was in that environmental video), and he is fairly knowledgeable about the topic.
