Urbanized is 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. Over 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 and economic development, and environmental policy are fast becoming universal concerns. Yet much of the dialogue on these issues is disconnected from the public domain. Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it? Unlike many other fields of design, cities aren't created by one specialist or expert. There are many contributors to urban change, including ordinary citizens who can have a great impact improving the cities in which they live. By exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the world, Urbanized frames a global discussion of the future of cities. The film will be followed by a discussion on urban design in Pittsburgh and around the world.
Films are open to the public and free of charge! Free parking is available in WT’s driveways and parking lots, or on the surrounding streets. For more information, call[masked] or visit www.winchesterthurston.org/asiaunreeled

    When this documentary was shown at Harris Theater, it was sold out. People were sitting on the floor. A worthwhile movie to see!
