Come enjoy the latest installment of the DC Environmental Film Festival about the contraversy and challenges of designing cities to balance the needs of all.
Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it? Unlike many other fields of design, cities are not created by any one specialist or expert. 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. This documentary examines the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders and thinkers. By exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the world, Urbanized frames a global discussion on the future of cities.
This film is presented by the National Building Museum and will be screened at the museum, located at 401 F St. NW, metro accessable from the Judiciary Square station.
