Two visionary architects in this month's Vanity Fair

The current "Green Issue" of Vanity Fair magazine profiles two architects and their endeavors to build eco-friendly sustainable buildings and change the way design interacts with the environment.

In the article "Industrial Revolution, Take Two", American architect William McDonough explains his "Cradle to Cradle" philosophy and the concept of "Waste=Food" leading to the idea of a new industrial revolution.

"Natural Phenomenon" explores the new California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, the greenest museum ever built and one of the latest projects by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano.

The films WASTE=FOOD and RENZO PIANO are the ideal companions to these articles.

Through interviews of William McDonough and German ecological chemist Michael Braungart, WASTE=FOOD explores the concept and ideas behind the ecologically inspired new industrial revolution, while as a revealing personal and professional portrait, RENZO PIANO follows three projects at different stages of progress and offers the architect's views on his craft.
