Each month, we show you a short film that’s moved us beyond the day – meaningful stories that inspire us to pause, think and feel.

The urban project – urban solutions for greener cities and peaceful coexistence among citizens – is no accident.

Organisations like urban design consultancy Urbidermis have been thoughtfully curating our shared domestic spaces – streetlights and benches, trees and plants. They intervene at all stages of the urban project – where we live, thrive, love and work – to ensure the city of tomorrow can thrive around nature and its citizens.

Creative production company Mañana and director Aitor Bigas document their work.

“Think of life as a theatre, we are designers of the venue.”
