The Human Scale

directed by Andreas Dalsgaard

On estimate, 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? This documentary profiles architect Jan Gehl's new approach to urban planning that puts people in the center of the planning.
