10 Buildings that Changed America


"10 Buildings that Changed America" is a national television special coming to PBS about ten influential American buildings that changed the way we live, work, and play. The program is hosted by Geoffrey Baer and written and produced by Dan Protess. The national airdate is Sunday, May 12, 2013 at 10:00 pm ET/9:00 pm CT. These ten buildings were selected in consultation with a panel of historians and architects from across the country:

Virginia State Capitol, Richmond, VA

Trinity Church, Boston, MA

Wainwright Building, St. Louis, MO

Robie House, Chicago, IL

Highland Park Ford Plant, Highland Park, MI

Southdale Center Mall, Edina, MN

Seagram Building, New York, NY

Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, VA

Vanna Venturi House, Chestnut Hill, PA

Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, CA

The program features striking videography, rare archival images, distinctive animation, and interviews with some of the nation’s most insightful historians and architects (including Frank Gehry and Robert Venturi), tied together with fast-paced editing and contemporary music. This is a journey that will take viewers inside these groundbreaking works of art and engineering. It is also a journey back in time, to discover the shocking, funny, and even sad stories of how these buildings came to be. And ultimately, it is a journey inside the imaginations of ten daring architects who set out to change the way we live, work, worship, learn, shop, and play. (Source: PBS)
