Watch: First Trailer for Gary Hustwit's New 'Urbanized' Documentary
Urban design is the language of the city. Thanks to a tip from The Playlist, the first official trailer for Gary Hustwit's new documentary Urbanized has been posted. This stylish and inspiring documentary from the director behind design docs Helvetica and Objectified examines ideas about cities and urban design with examples from around the world and interviews with architects, politicians, artists and city planners. This looks like another great film to follow-up Hustwit's past design documentaries. If anything, it'll be inspiring to see all the stunning cities from around the world they visit. I'm definitely planning to see this when I can.
Watch the first official trailer for Gary Hustwit's Urbanized documentary, via YouTube:
An independent documentary about the design of cities, looking at the issues and strategies behind urban design, featuring some of the world's foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders and thinkers.
Urbanized is the third film in the design trilogy from filmmaker Gary Hustwit (on Twitter @gary_hustwit), whose past docs include Objectified, about manufactured objects, and Helvetica, about the legendary font. The film just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this month, and is still setting up release plans, so stay tuned. For info/updates and to find details on upcoming screenings of the doc, visit: urbanizedfilm.com.
It will be interesting to see if they cover any of Jane Jacobs writings. Mainly, that urban planning is doomed to fail.

I loved Helvetica. Everything that is around my area has been designed too. Badly. By someone that got a lot of money to do very little. I'm sure everyone can relate, it's why the shopping park near my home looks the same as one in Ohio or Oslo.
