The Human Scale: it’s a ticking time bomb. In the next 40 years the number of people living in cities will nearly double. There is not enough time to build the necessary infrastructure to accomodate all of us. According to revolutionary 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.
