The locally produced film ScrapHouse: San Francisco follows a team of architects, designers, engineers, city officials and builders who, in honor of World Environment Day 2005, were challenged to construct an architecturally sound, single family dwelling using only scrap, recycled, and salvaged materials--and in only six weeks. The project was conceived by SF filmmaker Anna Fitch and Chicken John. ScrapHouse was designed by Public Architecture, with construction taking place in San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza. 44 mins.
