KCET, the #2 public television station in the US, airs Artbound, an art and culture series now in its ninth season.
Urban planner Michael Gordon recommends this episode from season 8 (just under one hour) on ‘The Third Los Angeles,’ presented by Christopher Hawthorne, who was at the time urban and architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times; he is now the City’s Chief Design Officer.
Here, Hawthorne looks at “the future of Los Angeles by examining its architecture, urban planning, transportation and changing demographics, giving us a glimpse of Los Angeles as a model of urban renewal for the nation and the world.”
