Streetsblog: A Streetside Chat with Architecht Jan Gehl

10:19 AM PST on November 24, 2008

International Livable Streets Superstar Jan Gehl was originally going to speak in Los Angeles earlier this year as part of the Imagine Green L.A. series put on by the now-defunct Livable Places.  While Jan isn't coming to Los Angeles anytime soon, his firm is working closely with NYCDOT and the results are a pretty impressive plan to increase pedestrian amenities in the Big Apple.  A lot of what Gehl and Streetsblog EIC Aaron Naperstek discuss is New-York-Centric but the truths and theories are universal and can be applied to Los Angeles or any American city.

If one Gehl film isn't enough, this isn't the first time he's been featured in a Streetfilm.
