Cities are becoming larger and more complex. Gary Hustwit's new documentary, Urbanized, highlights innovative urban design practices across the globe in regions facing daunting social and ecological challenges. We see how a subtle understanding of human behavior can inspire creative problem solving that ultimately transforms a city’s social well-being.
For two and a half months, the BGL has investigated how our need for comfort positively and negatively impacts our urban environment. Moderated by Lab member Charles Montgomery, this wide-ranging discussion features a diverse guest panel who will respond to clips from Urbanized and bring their own priorities and ideas to the table in an effort to see how we might urbanize with comfort.
