Urbanized ~ Presented by the Anchorage Museum in celebration of Design Week 2018
Looking at the issues and strategies behind urban design through the eyes of some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders and thinkers, Urbanized asks, “Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it?” Unlike many other fields of design, cities aren’t created by any one specialist or expert. There are many contributors to urban change, including ordinary citizens who can have a great impact improving the cities in which they live. Exploring the challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development, and environmental policy, Urbanized frames a global discussion on the future of cities through a diverse range of urban design projects around the world.
Join the Anchorage Museum for this special Design Week screening, followed by a discussion with Michelle McNulty, Planning Director at the Municipality of Anchorage, on urban design initiatives happening right here in Anchorage.
