up from ashes
Directed by Bill Kubota

What goes into building a Library? Concerned with sustainability, the developers of the Traverwood Branch of the AADL took a unique approach to the building process by harvesting hundreds of ash trees devastated by the Emerald Ash Borer and reusing the trees in the construction of the building. 'Up From Ashes,' captures each step of the Traverwood Branch construction process, a process that combined both primitive and modern construction methods.
