SCI-Arc Urban Odyssey (April 4, 1974) Part 1 of 231:50

This video contains three broadcasts about the SCI-Arc Urban Odyssey program, a one week urban camping trip in student-built tents at various locations around the city. In the first segment, the hosts of KABC-TV’s “A.M. Los Angeles” morning show poke fun of the students and ask if they’d like to remove all buildings and replace them with a tent city. Those interviewed respond that their interest is in taking advantage and connecting with the city in a new way and to work within its context rather than continue a push toward the boundaries of the urban area. Adhe Lathi and student Bambi Moise are interviewed more sympathetically on KCAL-TV’s “The Morning Show.” The last clip is a brief report on the project by reporter Dick Garton for the KTLA-TV evening news.
