About the Show

This week on Smart City, we're talking about different ways of seeing a city. 

First we'll find out how cities can provide unique, creative experiences for their visitors from Alex Pattakos, co-editor of a new book called "Creative Tourism, A Global Conversation"  In it, he and others describe how cities can offer customized, authentic and meaningful experiences to their visitors that are tied to the uniqueness and ''spirit'' of a place. 

And we'll revisit my conversation with Fred Dust.  In his books on London and New York , Fred attempts to teach his readers how to look at the world with “eyes open” by showing them the intimacies of these cities that can be easy to miss. Fred is partner and practice lead for IDEO, a global design and innovation firm.
