Urbanized is the latest addition to Gary Hustwit’s design film trilogy, joining Helvetica (2007) and Objectified (2009). The feature-length documentary takes a holistic approach to the exploration of urban design. Hustwit looks at the roles that architects, planners and policymakers play in shaping the design of cities while also considering the great contribution that ordinary citizens make to their urban surroundings.
