A VTIFF-affiliated monthly series of films and discussions about architecture and design

Directed by Gary Hustwit | Switzerland | 2011 | documentary | 85 minutes

Over half the world’s population now lives in an urban area, and 75% will call a city home by 2050. Urbanized  looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design- the balancing of housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy are universal concerns. From Paris to New York to Mumbai to Rio de Janeiro, from the bike lanes of Bogota to the walkways threading through the townships of Cape Town- what comes, what goes, what grows. Who shapes our cities, and how?  Exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the world, Urbanized frames a global discussion on the future of cities
