Event Details

Co-presented with the Danish Architect Association

Fifty percent of the world's population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this will increase to 80%. Life in a mega-city is both enchanting and problematic. Today we face peak oil, climate change, loneliness and severe health issues due to our way of life. But why? The Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has studied human behavior in cities for 40 years. He has documented how modern cities repel human interaction, and argues that we can build cities in a way that takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account. The Human Scale meets thinkers, architects and urban planners across the globe. It questions our assumptions about modernity, exploring what happens when we put people at the center of our planning.

The Human Scale (2012), 77 mins
Directed by Andreas Dalsgaard

The evening will begin with a trailer of the film 5 Blocks, directed by Dan Goldes (@SFO_Dan) and Robert Cortlandt (www.urbanstreetfilms.com). Due for release in 2016, the documentary features the revitalization of San Francisco's central Market Street, from a gritty no-man's land to a center for art and technology. Running time: 8 mins.
