About the Show

Is design like a prescription drug, something only professionals can administer? Or are we all capable of developing a sense of good design?

Those are questions we'll explore with our guests on "Smart City."

First, we'll talk to Craig Robins. As president of the Miami development firm,ÊDacra, Craig has brought design out of hiding and into the public domain in the Miami Design District.

And we'll talk to Chris Pullman who is art director of the recently re-issued classic by modernist George Nelson,ÊÊwho believed that with practice, we can all acquire a taste for good design.

Very early in his career, Chris worked for George Nelson. That's one reason he eagerly jumped into the project to serve as art director for the re-issue of Nelson's classic book. Chris is director of design for WGBH, Boston.
