Copenhagen I loved you even before we met you in 2011. You are inspiring in many ways for urban living and I’ve been a fan of your countryman Jan Gehl for a long time. This is a lovely interview from Jan’s recent Melbourne visit.

    I’m enjoying Sunday morning breakfast and this article about Jan Gehl. In retrospect what he says and does seems so obvious, but it often takes someone to state the obvious – repeatedly – for us to change. I like too his generosity towards other architects and planners esp Jane Jacobs…thanks for this post!

    Beautiful photos and I love his philosophy on walking. Conversation and creative/positive thoughts seem to flow much better when I’m walking. A great link – thanks Lucent:)

    I enjoyed reading this article. It must be wonderful to see his ideas coming to fruition in so many countries and making people appreciate and spend more time in their cities. You can take in some much more of your surroundings by walking.

    Well, after reading that article on Mr. Gehl, it has sparked my interest to find out more about his philosophy. To the library I go. And here’s to hoping that more cities “do a Melbourne”!

    I really want to go to Copenhagen one day. It looks fabulous and exactly like the kind of place I would love to live.

    Thanks for introducing me to Jan Gehl. I like his passion for walking, and we definitely have to thank the Gehl architects for taking away the congestion and transforming that stretch of Broadway in NYC for people-who-like-to-walk like myself.
