The majority of the world population resides in urban areas, with a projected 75% more headed towards city zip codes in the next 50 years. The delicate balance between providing enough services to accommodate more residents, however, remains a highly controversial and much needed discussion between officials and the public.

Director Gary Hustwit examines the impact of increased population on housing policy, health services and economic development in “Urbanized,” the third installment in his design trilogy. Encouraging discussion between world-renowned architects, planners and other professionals, “Urbanized” examines the impact of urban design worldwide to establish the importance of healthy, stable cities.
