Synopsis
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? The 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. 

77min documentary by Andreas Møl Dalsgaard

    Well I thoroughly enjoyed last night's screening ... from the narrator's cool voice, beautiful cinematography, charming awkward footage of interviewees to the Christchurch reality flashback. How about you? What stoodout for you, what did you take away?

      Inspired to question my own 'living space' and.... ≧◉◡◉≦ thought of planning a Snow Day 2015: a public snowball fight in the town square, although the act of making snow for this event would have to be sustainable, we could kickstart this, any thoughts?

    Metaphysical space meets the art of living. How far are we willing to go?

    I really enjoyed this movie and I've been thinking about it for the past couple of days... the way people interact in social spaces and how we need to build more opportunities to meet up into our urban environment. I'm glad I popped in to The Cross before hand too - it was nice to sit down with everyone. I'll look foreard to the next film.

    Evening all. We've the mid-sized 55 seater auditorium sorted for next Monday's film and I've just noticed that there are just 20 seats left available. If you've not yet bought your ticket on eventfinder this is your timely reminder :)

  • Dave K.

    Afternoon all.
    Tickets for this DesignCinema screening of The Human Scale are available now! http://eventfinder.co.nz/2014/the-human-scale/wellington
    Due to the success of our last screening, these tickets are $15 instead of $20. If we sell out the main auditorium again, our August tickets will be just $10, so spread the good word! :)
    Cheers
