Sometimes the most beautiful things are the ones we take for granted on a daily basis. One example of that is also the subject of Urbanized, the new documentary by Gary Hustwit: our cities. From the roads, to the trees, to the buildings and sidewalks, almost every square foot of every city in the world is carefully planned, yet we drive around not thinking about the intricate detail that was considered years and years ago to try and control congestion, pollution and a million other things. Hustwit’s previous documentaries, Helvetica and Objectified, were also about seemingly mundane subjects but, once he was done with them, you couldn’t look at typography or everyday objects the same way again. Urbanized will certainly do the same for your place of residence.
