This Week On Smart City: Sustainable Urbanism

If you listen regularly to our show, you've heard many of our guests talk about how places grow, how we get from one place to another, and how we can live more sustainably. Our guest this week takes all three of those questions and weaves them into one coherent set of policies that can help make next generation cities a reality. He is Doug Farr, author of the new book, Sustainable Urbanism.

Doug is an architect, urban designer and founding principal and president of Farr Associates in Chicago. He chaired the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED for Neighborhood Development Core Committee.

Smart City is a syndicated, weekly hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life: the people, places, ideas and trends that affect us all. Host Carol Coletta talks with national and international public policy experts, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others on the pulse of city life for a penetrating discussion on urban issues.

Smart City is broadcast at 6 a.m. Saturday and Sundays on WKNO-FM, but it is also webcast and podcast. For the webcast, times for the broadcast in other cities and to sign up for the podcast, visit the website.
