Author of many of the books that have defined urban planning today, Jan Gehl is a Danish architect and urban consultant based in Copenhagen whose work has focused on making cities function at the people scale. He sees the city as being built at a city scale, site scale, and people scale, but feels that most architects and urban planners completely ignore the people scale. They create cities from an aerial view and ignore the life between buildings that truly makes the space work. In his practice he seeks to re-orient the city away from cars and towards the pedestrian and cyclist in order to make healthy and happy cities.
