What’s On: The Human Scale

If you are interested in urban environments, people and city living then it is worth a trip to ACMI to see The Human Scale.  Danish architect Jan Gehl has created a documentary investigating how urban environments impact and enhance human life and happiness.


Jan Gehl has spent years observing humans in their urban environments to see how they naturally use them.  I was fortunate enough to study under Gehl whilst in Copenhagen, a city which is designed for people rather than vehicles, and I really respect his mission of improving the quality of urban life on a human scale.

Maybe this trailer will entice you.

The Human Scale is showing until Thursday 4th July.
