The conception and construction of this unique Himalayan school.

This is the first in a series of video podcasts for the PBS series e2 design II. Each podcast takes you beyond the episodes and deeper into the world of sustainable design. In this episode, His Holiness The Twelfth Gyalwang Drukpa, the school's founder, explains how the speed of construction is impacted by both funding and the harsh Ladakhi climate. The school has been constructed in stages since 1998, when building first began. Major corporate funding for the e2 series is provided by Autodesk.
