Urban Design Film Screening and Forum - Urbanized by Gary Hustwit
This feature-length documentary is about the design of cities - it looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world's foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders and thinkers.
We are working on a campaign to bring Gary Hustwit to Australia. This event would include a breakfast, preview screenings and a post-film forum looking at the challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy and connecting this dialogue into the public domain. It is anticipated that up to 500 people would be involved.
