Gary Hustwit, the director of the documentary Helvetica, is working on a new documentary about the design of cities. Urbanized looks at the issues and strategies as well as the people that are shaping how our cities develop. The film tries to explain how the design of cities effects our lives:
Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it? Unlike many other fields of design, cities aren’t created by any 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.
