Commissioned by His Holiness The Twelfth Gyalwang Drukpa and designed by Arup architect Jonathan Rose, the school features sustainable technologies that suit the altitude and landscape, as well as Ladakh's cultural climate.

Autodesk is to be commended for their underwriting of this series, that from the git-go, recognizes that the built environment (design and engineering) is the major cause of ecosystem destablization and likely, accelerated climate change. Brad Pitt does an excellent job of narration. It reminds me of that line in Frank Herbert's novel "Dune" - "The first step in avoiding a trap, is knowing of its existence". It goes a step further by highlighting projects and personalities attempting to deal with errors and omissions of previous practice that failed to recognize the ethics of the engineering and design professions. The series should be required viewing at all accredited Engineering, Design and Schools of Public Health.

Possibly one of the most important bodies of information regarding the challenges of building cities which are solving problems rather than creating more of them.
