FROM Darren Gold
Skyspace LA There’s a new attraction in downtown LA that has everyone talking: the Skyslide. The outdoor glass slide, part of OUE Skyspace LA , allows riders to slide from the 70th floor of the city’s iconic US Bank Tower , once the tallest building in the world. It’s part of an effort to reinvigorate the financial district. DnA braved a ride down the slide and asked the building’s original architect, Henry Cobb, what he thought of the addition.
Ringing in the Changes in Los Angeles This year on DnA you heard about new developments at the LA River, the opening of The Broad and the Petersen Automotive Museum... the launch of a new e-car company, and Santa Monica's new bike share program... changing attitudes to water capture. . .global money flowing into expensive, empty houses... and, possibly, the birth of a new Pershing Square. In this look-back at the changes in Los Angeles, we also hear about the good and the bad of continued growth; the significance of the demise of Kitson and the rise of private clubs; and, post-Paris, the "genius" of Governor Jerry Brown at communicating climate change.
From Trump to farm to slaughterhouse to restaurant So many hands go into bringing our food to the table, from farm and slaughterhouse to market and restaurant. We hear about how President Trump's immigration policies will affect business at Taco María, Maddox Dairy and La Niña del Mezcal, and examine the travel ban's impact on the way even your sausage gets made. Plus, meet the people behind the local produce, fungi and seafood at the Hollywood Farmers' Market.
