Impossible Builds Impossible Builds is an "access-all-areas" look at the creation of some of the world's most ambitious, complex, and technologically advanced construction projects. From subaquatic homes and the ultimate in billionaire luxury, to futuristic towers and pencil thin skyscrapers - these are the structures they said could never be built. But now, using revolutionary technology and cutting-edge construction materials, three previously impossible builds are taking shape across the world. And Impossible Builds, Volume 1 is on site to follow their progress every step of the way.
In Miami, The Scorpion Tower is a show-stopping skyscraper with an insect-like external skeleton. Its design is so radical, construction experts have turned to a building material never used in skyscraper construction before. If successful, it could revolutionize the industry.
Off the coast of Dubai, Austrian property developer Josef Kleindienst is spending tens of millions of dollars to recreate the essence of Europe across six artificial islands. Europe in the Desert is a six million square foot resort will feature 14 hotels, 42 private residences, and will accommodate up to 16,000 people at a time.
Also in Dubai, architect Marco Bolzoni's fantasy project is called The Floating House. It's a floating villa combining the best of land and marine design. Above the waterline it promises two floors of ultra luxury living space, but head downstairs and step into another world. The floating house hopes to offer the first underwater bedroom, complete with a coral garden.
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.
