IFHP invites you to join a free public lecture by the world famous architect Jan Gehl

The Danish architect and urban design consultant Jan Gehl tells the story about liveable cities for the 21st Century.

Throughout his career as an architect, Gehl has become more and more focused on what he calls the human dimension in urban planning and is fascinated by the borderland between sociology, psychology and architecture. In his new book Cities for people (2010) he describes why looking after people is crucial for the quality of cities in the 21st century.
