Dan Cruickshank's Adventures in Architecture


Series 1 - Episode 7 Dreams



The historian examines buildings made with the future in mind. He visits an ancient city of skyscrapers in Yemen, and Santa Domingo in the Dominican Republic, where Spanish invaders set a pattern for other cities to follow. Dan also heads to Bhutan in the Himalayas, where a king wanted modern monuments to be indistinguishable from those built 500 years earlier, and heads to Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia, to explore how plans can go wrong.
