Pochi, certo, capiscono il carattere puramente soggettivo del fenomeno amoroso, e la sorta di creazione cui esso dà luogo, d’una persona supplementare, distinta da quella che nel mondo porta lo stesso nome, e i cui elementi derivano per la maggior parte da noi stessi.

How Cities Should Be Designed by Mikael Colville-Andersen on Flickr.


The Human Scale is a film about the work of Jan Gehl:

about the film

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.

This will be premiering in NYC, 18 October 2013 at the IRC Film Center. I’m planning to go.
