Guest: Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris, Associate Provost for Academic Planning, Professor of Urban Planning, University of California, Los Angeles In the future, your neighborhood park might have sidewalks that generate electricity when you walk on them and keep the lights on. Concrete walls in the park might have the ability to heal themselves of cracks. Park benches might have plugs for charging phones and solar-powered trash cans might be able to alert maintenance when they’re full.
