About the Show

What is the good life? That's a question an upcoming exhibition organized by the Van Alen Institute will explore. Its curator Zoe Ryan is with us to talk about The Good Life: New Public Spaces for Recreation and what cities can learn from the 70 architectural projects it showcases.

Pop City Pittsburgh and Model D showcase the good life each week in Pittsburgh and Detroit. They are online products from Issue Media Group and its founder Brian Boyle, who will tell us why urban America needs a new narrative.

Living the good life, this week on Smart City.
