Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has studied human behaviour in cities for 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.
One of the grandfathers of contemporary urban design theory, Jan Gehl has dedicated himself to making cities better places for people to live in for some fifty years.
