Planning cities

Over the coming weeks we will be featuring a series of topic-based video clips inspired by our recent involvement in Andreas M. Dalsgaard’s documentary ‘The Human Scale’.  The first two clips, entitled ‘Human dimension in planning’ and ’Making life visible’ launch what we hope will be a heated debate on how we plan our cities.  We’re looking to get your opinions and are very much looking forward to reading and commenting on your thoughts.

In the first video short, Gehl CEO Helle Søholt discusses some of the problems facing cities today, and how a human centered approach to planning and design can address some of these issues. The video shorts are a ‘taster’ to the upcoming documentary film inspired by the work of Jan Gehl and Gehl Architects entitled ‘ The Human Scale’.

In the second video short, Founding Partner Jan Gehl discusses how the systematic observation of people can be used to plan cities that take into our senses and needs. The video shorts are a ‘taster’ to the upcoming documentary film inspired by the work of Jan Gehl and Gehl Architects entitled ‘ The Human Scale’.
