The Adventures of Greco and Beco: The Glass House
Join Greco and Beco, Singapore's greenest buildings, in their first adventure in Kampong Hijau! Greco, Beco, and their friend Nor find that the residents are very upset because someone has built a house made entirely out of glass - something which is not 'green' at all! The 3 friends meet Bucky Foo, the young boy who designed the house. Bucky could not care less about the house's design nor the energy wasted with the air-conditioning running all day. The 3 friends take Bucky on an adventure through time and the young designer soon finds out what makes a healthy and green home.
