Design and Architecture

Host Frances Anderton looks at design and architecture from a Los Angeles perspective.

DnA: Design and Architecture was a multi-platform exploration of design and architecture, hosted and produced by Frances Anderton from 2002 to 2020.

A series produced by Anderton about ingenious solutions to California's waste problems will air on KCRW's Greater LA, starting January 4, 2021. It is called "No Such Place as Away: Neat Solutions to the Dirty Problem of Waste."

Named one of the top design podcasts by Architectural Digest and by Dezeen, DnA has been featured in many outlets, including the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Magazine, Curbed, Angeleno and Metropolis Magazine, who called Frances the “voice of design for the city.”

Since departing KCRW, Anderton covers design and architecture independently. She is working on a book about multifamily housing. Follow her at
