LA Reinvents the Wheel; Artists Honor a Utopian Architect

Hosted by
LA has long been celebrated as a city of “mobility.” But now the region has become so gridlocked people are looking for new ways to keep on moving. Harald Belker talks about the automated cars he designed for the movie Minority Report and the consumer robotics game Anki – and what they mean for real cars. Marlyn Musicant talks about Union Station, celebrating its 75th birthday with a revival of rail transit. And Avishay Artsy talks about a centennial celebration of Llano Del Rio a socialist living experiment in Palmdale and the architect who tried to use design and planning to free women of housework and childcare.
