Presented by Speakeasy Cinema and design100 as a fundraiser for Open House Melbourne. Gary Hustwit ('Helvetica', 'Objectified') takes on the City in 'Urbanized'. Urbanized is the concluding chapter in director Gary Hustwit's documentary trilogy about design. The first, 'Helvetica', concerned the alternatively revered and reviled typeface of its title. The second, 'Objectified', broadened its scope to examine the sometimes invisible ubiquity of design in the objects around us.
