Architectural Record has a brief story about Rebuilding Ground Zero, a six-part TV documentary about the construction efforts at the site of the former World Trade Center that is being executive produced by Steven Spielberg. The show will air on the Science Channel in fall 2011 to mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Shooting began in mid-February on the project conceived by Brooklyn-based architect Danny Forster, who will provide narration, and Jonathan Hock, who will direct.
An episode will be dedicated to One World Trade Center, the office tower by David Childs which is the first of four planned towers to go up on the 16-acre site, comments Architectural Record.
In early February, Spielberg paid his first visit to the site, where he signed a beam that will end up on the 20th floor of One World Trade.
A transit hub designed by Santiago Calatrava -- whose skeletal designs blanket his hometown of Valencia, Spain -- will be profiled in a separate episode. The site's memorial, which was designed by Michael Arad will be featured in a third.
The show will also weave in stories about the workers who are constructing the new buildings.
Rebuilding, however, won't dwell on images from the fateful day nor the now infamous delays that have stemmed from squabbles over design requirements and financing.
