  • Begins with a one-minute tour of world architecture from Egypt in the days of the Pharaohs to the United States today. Presents ways architects are responding to today's technological and population explosions, to a sudden awareness of dwindling natural resources and to the realization that people have a right to exert control over the kinds of places in which they live. As an example a look the process of planning human environments of a large scale is shown as a volunteer team of architects helps the city of Reno, Nevada, develop a plan for the city's future growth and development patterns.
