- Objectives

Our purpose is to educate and inspire...  By showing audiences an extensive portfolio of designs and a behind-the-scenes look at how skyscrapers and other public buildings go from imagination to drawing board to reality, we hope to create a sense of wonder to inspire a new generation of architects and builders to push the boundaries of building design and construction. 

Because one of the show's supporting characters is an aspiring architect, we also get to see the road one has to travel in order to become part of an architecture firm...
