Over the next 40 years, the number of people living in cities is going to double. Megacities will grow into gigacities, huge, desolate urban jungles of steel and concrete for living and working. But what about the inhabitants peopling this scifi nightmare? The Danish architect and town planner Jan Gehl has been working for decades on reconquering public space for city dwellers. It is not aesthetics and functionality that dictate his plans, but the human factor. Human Scale follows and presents Gehl's projects and visions of a new urban life in cities like Copenhagen, New York and Christchurch.
