About the Show

What makes a place feel like home? That's a question that design psychologist Toby Israel helps people explore by developing their "environmental family trees." Dr. Israel is a design psychologist with Toby Israel Consulting. She's the author of Some Place Like Home, published by Wiley Academy Press. We'll find out more about her methods this week on Smart City.

Smart City also talks with former Indianapolis Mayor Steve Goldsmith, one of the best-known urban innovators, about his work with Bring New Orleans Back, and we'll get a firsthand report on the problems and opportunities in that city.

We'll explore the concept of home and check in with contributors Otis White and Walker Smith this week on Smart City.
