About the Show

Good urban design is central to any city's success. This week's guests are shaping cities in important ways by making and celebrating good design.

Simeon Bruner is founder of the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence, a national award for urban places, and this year's Gold Medal winner is the Pittsburgh Children's Museum and Family District. We'll talk to Simeon about the competition and the projects recognized this year.

Also with us is Margi Nothard, designer of an outstanding new public space in Hollywood, Florida - ArtsPark at Young Circle - which may define a whole new category of urban amenity.

Our subject is urban design this week on Smart City.
