“Janette Sadik-Khan, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation, wrote ‘Jan Gehl is our greatest observer of urban quality and an indispensable philosopher of cities as solutions to the environmental and health crises that we face’. With over half the world’s population now in urban areas, the entire planet needs to learn the lessons he offers in Cities for people.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear Denmark’s most famous architect talk about his 50 years of work on urban development. Jan Gehl will be joined in conversation following the lecture by Professor Rob Adams AO, City of Melbourne, and Jill Garner, Associate Victorian Government Architect. Jan will be signing copies of his new book, which will be for sale at the event. Be sure to arrive early.”
