"...fascinating, idea-packed.... Urbanized survey[s] both the challenges and promises facing some of the world's important cities.... It is worth venturing out of your room, climbing on your bike or boarding a low-emissions bus and fighting your way through a crowd to see." - NY TIMES
Urbanized is a documentary about the design of cities, which looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers. Over half the world’s population now lives in an urban area, and 75% will call a city home by 2050. But while some cities are experiencing explosive growth, others are shrinking. By exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the world, Urbanized frames a global discussion on the future of cities.
