According to revolutionary Danish architect and urban planner Jan Gehl, if we are to make cities sustainable we must re-imagine the very foundations of urban planning. Gehl and his team meticulously study the in-between spaces of urban life, the places where people meet, interact, live, and behave. How do the spaces that surround us enhance or disturb our interactions with others?
Introduced by Jeff Risom, Partner, Gehl Architects, Copenhagen. The film will be followed by a panel discussion on cities designed for people.
