Dead city of Miranda/modern American high school. OK, this is arcane, but I got a hoot hearing about how the campus of Diamond Ranch High School (chosen as a perfect place for the cold dead city on Miranda) works as a living high school that can help students be "open and creative".
Diamond Ranch High School in Pomona, California, served as the set for the ultramodern exteriors for the street scenes on Miranda in Serenity. The radio show "DNA: Design and Architecture" had a story April 18 on the architecture of high schools which featured a visit to Diamond Ranch. The high school story is the first in the broadcast, and the Diamond Ranch part begins at 5:35 in. I actually enjoyed the whole show--worth a listen. FYI: If you want more info about the school, here's one article.
