Charles Montgomery at The Well: A Gathering Place for Conversation
Can the shape of your city affect how happy you are? Yes, says Charles Montgomery, who explores the intersection of urban design and the new science of happiness. In psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics, and in cityscapes from Disneyland to Dubai, he finds the link between the ways we think about risk and reward and the ways we design our cities.
An award-winning author and urban experimentalist, Charles Montgomery is the author of Happy City, forthcoming from FSG in 2013. In his work, Montgomery has used insights in happiness science to drive high-profile experiments that help citizens transform their relationships with each other and their cities.
