A documentary about the design of cities, which looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world's foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers.
Eclectic students and faculty from all over the planet meet at one of the the world's top industrial design school in Scandinavia's faraway north just below the Arctic Circle. This documentary explores everyday life, unique study methods and dynamic design processes at Umeå Institute of Design during the school's 25th anniversary when traditionally welcoming and generous Sweden, with its export-driven economy, imposes steep tuition fees for non-Europeans, the very students that have been instrumental in making the school what it is today.Written by
This film about some design students in Umeå is really nice as we get a chance to see a Chinese and a Turkish guy designing cars and other products from scratch. I have never really understood how this has been done so this film gave me a really good idea on the different steps in design instead of just showing a flashy finished product. Very useful to follow these students for a whole year in order to understand what incredible effort it is to make something as seemingly simple as a drill. I want to really suggest many people to watch this film especially if you are interested in design and industrial design. Recommended doc.
