Join us Monday, March 5 for a screening of Urbanized and OUR FUTURE IN URBAN SUSTAINABILITY panel. Urbanized is the third part of Gary Hustwit’s design film trilogy, joining Helvetica (2007) and Objectified (2009), and frames a global discussion on the future of cities.

More than half the world’s population now lives in cities and statistics say that 75% will have migrated to a an urban area by 2050. Hustwit’s captivating and lively new documentary about the design of cities examines how major urban environments are adapting to the challenges of today and tomorrow, particularly climate change and population growth. It’s a study of how a city’s visual design can impact its daily life. Through thoughtful interviews and carefully selected images, this eye-opening film looks at the challenges and promises facing some of the world’s important cities from New York and Paris to Bogota and Cape Town. We learn about and see the impact of innovative solutions including new bike lanes, walkways and housing projects.

Urbanized has been called “an idea-packed new documentary” by A.O. Scott of the New York Times, and Joshua K. Leon of Metropolis says “Urbanized posits that city dwellers must not only forge an innovative self-reliance, they must imagine higher forms of living.”
