A new six part series has started on BBC2 titled How Buildings Learn. The programmes bring Stewart Brand’s American book to the screens, in an attempt to understand the processes which shape buildings over time. In this week’s programme, Brand visits invisible buildings such as old warehouses and holiday chalets. The remaining programmes focus on what makes a home, a street, a city, the romance of maintenance and how do buildings that survive the centuries develop and change over time? The programme is aired on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm over the next five weeks.
