About the Show

This week on Smart City we talk to two people who want you to get out and get to know your neighborhood. Shawn Micallef is an editor with Spacing magazine. Spacing is an innovative publication about public space in Toronto. Shawn will tell us about Toronto's unique city structure, and how he wants to turn city planners into rock stars.

And we'll speak with Mark Hinshaw, architect and author of the book True Urbanism. In it, Mark describes how to create neighborhoods, what you need to sustain a small business, and replaces the clean lines of New Urbanism with the messy vitality of "True Urbanism."

Plus, a special treat this week: We'll hear a piece from the fictional urbanism of The City Desk.
