FROM THIS EPISODE

Victor Drai, back in Los Angeles with a glam new namesake club, on top of the W Hotel, says you can't have a good nightclub without good design. We speak with Drai and young club designer Christian Schulz about LA clubs and how you go about designing a "vibe." Also, the City of Glendale looks for a curator of art for its recession-hit storefronts. And structural engineer Nabih Youssef delivers the good, and bad, news about LA buildings and their readiness for a Chile-scale earthquake.
