城市設計如同城市的語言。〈全球都被都市化〉描述城市設計背後的問題與策略。當你走上街,你看到的每樣東西都是經過設計,但當城市經歷爆炸性的成長過程,一些東西正在慢慢消失。住房供需平衡、人口遷移、公共空間、公民參與、經濟發展,以及環境政策等各項挑戰成為全球關注的議題。

導演Gary Hustwit結合學者、當地居民、行動主義者、藝術家訪問,並向擁有建築界畢卡索美譽的巴西建築之父Oscar Niemeyer、威尼斯建築雙年展終身成就金獅獎得主荷蘭建築巨擘Rem Koolhaas、英國現代主義國寶建築大師Norman Foster提出詢問,「我們究竟該怎麼做?」如何以設計思考解決城市發展議題。本片透過不同角度了解城市設計,並且帶領你一次走訪紐約、巴黎、北京、哥本哈根、里約熱內盧等國際各大城市。

★ “Hustwit drives home the urgency of radically rethinking city life as the world population tops seven billion.” ~ Chicago Reader

★ “Urbanized is a fast zoom out to the big picture: The colonies or hives in which we arrange, display and support our lives.” ~ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

★ “Lively, curious and pedagogical. Like a really good class taught by a team of enthusiastic professors.” ~ A.O. Scott, New York Times

Urbanization is not just a design problem, it is one of the most significant trends of the last century. Over half the world’s population now lives in an urban area, and 75% will call cities home by 2050. This critically recognized documentary is anything but a dry historical analysis of this immense challenge to humankind. Instead, director Gary Hustwit (Helvetica, Objectified) seeks out more than 40 of the world’s top architects and city planners ~ including Sir Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas and Oscar Niemeyer ~ and asks them what we should do. In the process, he rides on lanes in Bogota, Columbia, visits slums in Mumbai, where there is one toilet for every 600 people, and breathes the pollution filled air of Beijing. It is a film that is concise, entertaining and, as New York Times film critic A.O. Scott observes, “even viewers with deep knowledge of modern urban planning are likely to learn something.”
