  This public lecture was given by Jan Gehl at the Strelka Institute in Moscow on the 15th of July 2013. It is a more detailed version of the presentation for the study of Moscow that we published earlier.      


  For about a year Gelh Architects worked on research for Moscow preparing recommendations for making the city livable and comfortable for people. The full report is published as a very nice book. On this video you can see a short presentation of the report.    


  Interesting speeches from David Sim (Gehl Architects), Andreas Dalgaard (the director of films “The human Scale” and “Cities on Speed — Bogotá Change”) and architects Rory Hyde and Felicity Stewart at Vivid Ideas festival in Sydney. They talk about Urban Space and how to make it more comfortable for people.    


A great film by William H.Whyte analyzes the most important characteristics that help urban places to become real Social Spaces.  


This project was presented on the international competition «PARK’ing» – for making up the design of the urban ecological object. I think this is a great idea combining nature and a social space. All the information about the project you can find here.  


A great talk from Douglass Farr, the author of Sustainable Urbanism: Urban Design With Nature.
