Cool Spaces!: The Best new Architecture
Cool Spaces!: The Best New Architecture is a television series that profiles the most provocative and innovative public space architecture in North America. Each hour-long episode is organized around a central theme - Performance Spaces, Libraries, Art Spaces, and Healing Spaces - and profiles three buildings. For each building, we see why it was designed, how it was designed, and discover just what makes the building so cool. Guided by architect and teacher Stephen Chung, we set off to explore these questions and decide for ourselves if a building really is a ""Cool Space""!

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
