Documentary about the making of the Traverwood Branch now online
Earlier this year, Detroit Public Television debuted a documentary by KDN Films called "Up From Ashes" about the making of AADL's Traverwood Branch Library. Documentarian Bill Kubota takes us through the process of building that library, from the concept to the opening. His film explores the sustainable design features of the building, like the harvesting of devastated ash trees from the site, and the construction of a technically complicated building that won a 2009 AIA Michigan Building Design Award. Now you can watch this film online or download it to your computer or iPod to watch anytime, or check out the DVD of "Up From Ashes" from AADL if you want to watch on your TV.
