Urban Fold

Feature Doc on Urban Design Out Soon (Trailer)

Urbanized is a feature-length documentary about the design of cities, which looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers.

Gary Hustwit is the director of the documentary Helvetica, which explored the proliferation of the typeface Helvetica as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. His latest, Urbanized, looks at design at the urban level, and includes interviews with Amanda Burden, Ellen Dunham-Jones, Jan Gehl, Rem Koolhaas, and other big names in planning and architecture.

Urbanized will premiere at film festivals later this year, followed by cinema screenings worldwide, television broadcasts, and release on DVD and digital formats.
