The Human Scale
50% 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? Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has studied human behavior in cities through 40 years. He has documented how modern cities repel human interaction, and argues that we can build cities in a way, which takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account.
Part of the Architecture+Film Series at the Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque, these two films will be screened beginning at 7:00pm on Thursday, December 5, 2013. The Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque is located at 100 Arthur Street in Winnipeg.
Admission is free.
