half the world’s population now lives in an urban area, and 75% will
call a city home by 2050. But while some cities are experiencing
explosive growth, others are shrinking.The challenges of balancing
housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development,
and environmental policy are fast becoming universal concerns. Yet much
of the dialogue on these issues is disconnected from the public domain.
By exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the
world, URBANIZED frames a global discussion on the future of cities.

“Even viewers with deep knowledge of modern urban planning are
likely to learn something from the carefully selected images and
thoughtful interviews that make up most of URBANIZED.” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
