On Thursday March 1st, the Architecture Club will be showing the documentary, Urbanized. The showing will take place at 8pm in the Bytwerk Theater, in the basement of the DeVos Communications Center. The following description is from the official website.
“Urbanized is a feature-length documentary 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. Over half the world’s population now lives in
urban areas, and 75% will call a city home by 2050. While some cities
are experiencing explosive growth, others are shrinking. The
challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic
engagement, economic development, and environmental policy are fast
becoming universal concerns.”
