The essence of design lies in its profound ability to affect how we think about and experience the world. This fall, a new film series about architecture and design that will engage, provoke and inspire the community by exploring the impact and importance of design and beauty in our lives. We invite you to join us for thoughtful discussion and light refreshments in hopes that this creative gathering will broaden awareness, foster connections, spark new ideas, and ultimately build momentum towards positive action.

URBANIZED

2011, Swiss, 85 Minutes, Directed by Gary Hustwit

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, Urbanizedframes a global discussion on the future of cities.
