Jan Gehl lecture at Chicago Architecture Foundation
The Chicago Architecture Foundation, in partnership with CEOs for Cities, presents a reception and lecture by the renowned Danish architect and urban planner, Jan Gehl on Wednesday, December 8, 2010. A reception is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., with the lecture to follow at 6:00 p.m. For more than forty years, Gehl has helped to transform urban environments around the world – including the Times Square pedestrian mall in New York City. Gehl will describe his strategies for creating high quality, functional, people-friendly places and cycling- and pedestrian-friendly cities around the globe, using his latest book, Cities for People, as a point of departure.
This event is part of CEOs for Cities’ Give a Minute, and Change Your City campaign. Give a Minute is a new kind of public dialogue about how to make Chicago an easier place to get around without owning a car.
