Making L.A.: Public Spaces Public spaces can make or break a city. They’re escapes from the relentless urban pace and help bring people together. They are town squares that make communities out of neighborhoods. They can even be engines for economic growth. But aside from the beach, Los Angeles has never been known for great public spaces.

CicLAvia and Gentrification This Sunday, thousands of bicyclists will roll through the streets of L.A. for the 10th CicLAvia.

Border wall builders, private art museums, Stamen Design An LA city councilman wants companies who want to do business with LA to disclose if they're also working on the US-Mexico border wall. Forget old-school bar graphs and pie charts -- depicting data has become an art form. And another private art museum opens soon in Los Angeles, but this one takes you into the fascinating world of freemasonry.
