April 2, 2012

We recently added Urbanized to the DBRL collection. The film played at the Ragtag last year and currently has a rating of 100% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is directed by Gary Hustwit, who has also done Helvetica and Objectified. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:

Documents the issues and strategies behind the design of cities. Hear from some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers. Discover the challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy that are fast becoming universal concerns. Explore a diverse range of urban design projects around the world which will frame a global discussion on the future of cities. “Creating a humane environment through design … will be the challenge” in the twenty-first century.
