This special Profiles presents a conversation between Franklyn Cater and Alexandros Washburn—top contributors to the Cities Project, an extensive reporting series about urban life in the 21st century heard on Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

Cater and Washburn focus on three topics. Location: how a city’s location makes all the difference in its interaction with nature; design: how design affects the ways city dwellers interact with neighbors and the environment; and mobility: how urban efforts are fortifying existing infrastructure and transit lines, adding new modes to give people options.

The conversation was recorded in November 2014 in the atrium of the School for Public and Environmental Affairs on the IU Bloomington campus.
