The challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy are fast becoming universal concerns. By exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the world, Urbanized frames a global discussion on the future of cities.Featuring Alejandro Aravena, Amanda Burden, Ricky Burdett, Candy Chang, Yung Ho Chang, Noah Chasin, James Corner, Ellen Dunham-Jones, Sir Norman Foster, Jan Gehl, Bruce Katz, Rem Koolhaas, Rahul Mehrotra, Oscar Niemeyer, Enrique Peñalosa, Ric Scofidio, Michael Sorkin, and more.«
