Explore City Design at CA’s Screening of “Urbanized”

“Urbanized,” a documentary by Gary Hustwit, will be shown on Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 7–9 p.m. at the East Columbia 50+ Center, located at the East Columbia Library at 6600 Cradlerock Way, Columbia. Following the screening, there will be a group discussion about the future of cities.

This event, held in conjunction with the Howard County Library system, is part of Columbia Association’s (CA) Community Building Speakers’ Series, which hosts thought-provoking speakers and events on topics that stimulate residents to discuss, engage and build a sense of community here in Columbia.

“As redevelopment of Downtown Columbia moves from vision to reality, what better time to sponsor this new film that explores the design of cities?” said Jane Dembner, director of the Community Building and Sustainability Division at CA.

The film features commentary by some of the world’s most prominent architects, policy-makers, builders and innovators. In addition, the film examines the challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development and environmental policy.

The running time for “Urbanized” is 85 minutes. This film is not rated. For more information on “Urbanized,” visit urbanizedfilm.com.
