Miami, FL— South Florida PBS (WPBT & WXEL) announces new show, Impossible Builds premiering on February 7th at 10:00 PM on WPBT and February 11th at 10:00 PM on WXEL featuring Miami’s own, One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects.    

Impossible Builds is an all access look at the creation of some of the world’s most ambitious, complex and technologically advanced construction projects. From subaquatic homes and the ultimate in billionaire luxury to futuristic towers and pencil thin skyscrapers, these are the structures they said could never be built. But now, using revolutionary technology and cutting-edge construction materials, three previously impossible builds are taking shape across the world. And Impossible Builds is on site to follow their progress every step of the way.

In Miami, follow the construction of one of the most complex skyscrapers ever to make it off the drawing board. Its design is so radical that construction experts have turned to a building material never-before used in skyscrapers.

One Thousand Museum is Zaha Hadid’s first and final residential skyscraper in the western hemisphere. Hadid is recognized for her revolutionary building design in premier cities, including Beijing, Abu Dhabi, Rome, and London.
