Designer/architect Brooks Atwood hosts the series and advises the competitors on style and construction. But turning trash into cash won’t be easy: Parts are in short supply and the designers who seize the best pieces gain advantages. Skill and imagination are needed to roll back years of decay and transform rusty objects into pieces of design magic.
