Charles Montgomery

How can we be happier in cities? Charles Montgomery finds answers at 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 demonstrates that we can transform our own lives by redesigning the cities we inhabit.

Charles Montgomery is an award-winning author, urbanist and leader of a team creating happier cities around the world. His book, Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design, examines the intersection between urban design and the science of happiness. The New York Times wrote: “Happy City raises issues most of us have avoided for too long. Do we live in neighborhoods that make us happy? That is not a silly question. Montgomery encourages us to ask it without embarrassment, and to think intelligently about the answer.”
