About the Show

This week on Smart City we'll speak with two people with their eye on the manufactured design of cities.

Lynn Osmond is the President of the Chicago Architecture Foundation. We'll find out why Chicago scored the number one spot in a recent report on the Top 10 U.S. Cities for design.

And we'll speak with Fritz Haeg. He's the author of the book Edible Estates. In it, he describes the process of transforming people's front lawns into a veritable bounty of edible greens.
