Audience Reviews for Urbanized
This film absolutely moves the paradigm of what our cities could and should be like. I definitely recommend it to any urban planner, architect, councilmember, planning commissioner, city manager and citizen group. The best film on Landscape Design I have ever seen.
An interesting, and more importantly, global perspective on the power of cities. "Urbanized" gives our lives context through its acute attention to details.
This is an absorbing documentary about the planning, building, & evolving of modern city spaces. The film is a must for anyone remotely interested in sociology or architecture.
