Welcome to the metropolis of tomorrow: Building Is People is the celebration of the people and the processes that make communities happen.

Hundreds of shots from more than 40 video source reels were cut up for this, including “Form, Design, And The City” (1962); “Lost Landscapes Of Detroit” (2010); “Once And Forever” (1956); “Out Of This World” (1954); and “Dynamic American City” (1956).

Look for the very special appearances of stars like Edmund Bacon, and young versions of IM Pei and Betty White!

A special nod goes out to Todd Wiseman, whose wonderful video “On Time” pretty much became the catalyst for this. Check it out atvimeo.com/53290747
