For more than forty years Jan Gehl has helped to transform urban environments around the world based on his research into the ways people actually use--or could use--the spaces where they live and work. In this revolutionary book, Gehl presents his latest work creating (or recreating) cityscapes on a human scale. He clearly explains the methods and tools he uses to reconfigure unworkable cityscapes into the landscapes he believes they should be: cities for people. Taking into account changing demographics and changing lifestyles, Gehl emphasizes four human issues that he sees as essential to successful city planning. He explains how to develop cities that are Lively, Safe, Sustainable, and Healthy. Focusing on these issues leads Gehl to think of even the largest city on a very small scale. For Gehl, the urban landscape must be considered through the five human senses and experienced at the speed of walking rather than at the speed of riding in a car or bus or train. This small-scale view, he argues, is too frequently neglected in contemporary projects. In a final chapter, Gehl makes a plea for city planning on a human scale in the fast- growing cities of developing countries. A "Toolbox," presenting key principles, overviews of methods, and keyword lists, concludes the book. The book is extensively illustrated with over 700 photos and drawings of examples from Gehl's work around the globe.… (mais)

    Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design por Charles Montgomery (thebookpile)

    City: Rediscovering the Center por William H. Whyte (rakerman)
    rakerman: Gehl and Whyte start with studying how people behave in urban spaces, and then propose designs and improvements based on human behaviour.

    Green Metropolis: Why Living Smaller, Living Closer, and Driving Less are the Keys to Sustainability por David Owen (rakerman)
    rakerman: Jan Gehl's Cities for People is a synthesis of his years of experience as an urban designer, with lots of info about the psychology of people moving in built space. It makes a good companion for David Owen's Green Metropolis, which is ostensibly about Manhattan as the greenest American city, but really more about why we need to live in dense urban environments and disinvite cars from the places we build, in order to live sustainably. One major difference is that Gehl for various reasons supported by human psychology prefers buildings of at most six storeys, whereas Owen advocates for the much taller towers typical of midtown and downtown Manhattan.… (mais)

    You Are Here: Why We Can Find Our Way to the Moon, but Get Lost in the Mall por Colin Ellard (rakerman)
    rakerman: Both books look at how human psychology relates to space and moving through it, with Ellard's book more related to navigation, and Gehl's more specific to urban design.

A lucid explanation of why urban design should be driven by how humans actually move through and perceive spaces, the integrated details at sidewalk level as seen by pedestrians. Stands in opposition to the modernist trend for the past 50 years to plan individual buildings as seen from an aerial view, which gave little consideration for how buildings and spaces would be experienced on the ground.

Cities are the places where people meet to exchange ideas, trade, or simply relax and enjoy themselves. — Foreword by Richard Rogers
For decades the human dimension has been an overlooked and haphazardly addressed urban planning topic, while many other issues, such as [accommodating] the rocketing rise in car traffic, have come more strongly into focus.
