FROM THIS EPISODE

Angelenos are building benches for bus stops in South Los Angeles; clearing trash and landscaping neglected strips of land and covertly planting trees on sidewalks. What's going on? Frances Anderton speaks with Jay Griffith, Mr. Stamens, Roly Poly and others about the "guerrilla" design of public space in Los Angeles. Plus, leading LA design company Artecnica opens its doors to locals.
