Urbanized (2011)

 

Director: Gary Hustwit.
82 mins.

75% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban centers by 2050. With this in mind Gary Hustwit, following his previous works Helvetica and Objectified, adds Urbanized to his design trilogy.

The documentary discusses the design of cities, looking at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world's foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers. Including Rem Koolhaas, Oscar Niemeyer, and Norman Foster.

“A city needs to show as much respect for a person riding a $30 bicycle as it does for someone driving a $30,000 car.”

-Enrique Peñalosa, former Mayor of Bogotá
