Film: The Human Scale

London continues to attract people from all over the world and grows more crowded everyday. Tonight's film invites you to consider the future of cities. In the next 40 years the number of people living in cities will nearly double. But is there time to build the necessary infrastructure to accomodate all of us? According to Danish city planner Jan Gehl, even the largest of megacities must be re-thought, re-designed and re-sized to the human scale.

Director Andreas M. Dalsgaard travels around the world to explore how Gehl’s vision of a human megacity – intimate, lively, safe, sustainable and healthy – is being implemented in places like New York, Chongqing and Christchurch. Thinkers, architects and urban planners across the globe question our assumptions about modernity. Against the backdrop of powerful shots of urban landscapes, they explore what happens when we put people at the heart of our planning.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Andreas M. Dalsgaard

    A thought provoking film and encouraging to hear director Dalsgaard's finally positive view of the future. Thanks to those who came and to those who joined for an interesting chat in the bar afterwards.

      There is no way round it I'm afraid. As I advised you previously it is recommended to book in advance.

    The code didn't work for me, however I was a bit cheeky and used the concession booking process and use the code in it. I paid £8. Hope I can get in!

      Ane, you need to do what Santiago did. You choose the concession rate, then add in the code.

      August 3, 2013

    • Ane

      Okay, thanks. I have now booked a concession ticket

      August 5, 2013

  • Ane

    I just tried to book a ticket, and applied the discount code, but the discount I get is £0.

    August 3, 2013

    • Liam

      Hi Ane, check you've copied the code correctly, and perhaps try again after closing down your browser and restarting. The code worked for me and I have double checked it.

      August 3, 2013

    • Ane

      I still cannot get it to work. It recognises the code, but registers the discount as £0.
