Community Gathers Around Guerrilla Coffee Table

Los Angeles Designer Julie Kim thinks the city is missing out on an opportunity at public transit hubs to create an environment that promotes interaction. So, Kim spruces up a bus stop with a coffee table and flowers and video records the results.

At one minute and 26 seconds, the brief time lapse shows two girls interact with the newspaper on the coffee table and other passersby at a bus stop in Koreatown, an ethically diverse neighborhood in Los Angeles.
