BY design100 | 20-Jun-2012
Presented by Speakeasy Cinema and design100 as a fundraiser for Open House Melbourne. Gary Hustwit ('Helvetica', 'Objectified') takes on the City in 'Urbanized'.

Finally, 'Urbanized' expands the horizons of the series once more to examine the design of the places 75% of people on Earth will be living in by 2050: cities.
