Places for People
Russell Degnan

Danish urban designer, Jan Gehl, author of the report Place for People, 10 years ago is back in Melbourne. Apparently, he sees a remarkable improvement in the quality of life in the city. The Age article lacked any sort of detail, but there is a free public lecture on:

Tuesday, 3 February, 6pm
Lecture Theatre, Storey Hall, RMIT

As a primer, there was an interview with Jan Gehl talking about pedestrian cities, in Metropolis Magazine in 2002.

Very excited guy
Russ, a great find, an interesting sounding person, in our world of seeing that the place we live in is more liveable. Lisa.

Re: lecture
Hi Gary,
I don't know. It was the City of Melbourne running it, rather than RMIT, so they are probably less interested in keeping a record. I'll ask around the university though, if it was taped it should be somewhere.

2004-2005 same, same
Ha Ha Ha
I just missed it, huh?
Well, I know that Jan Gehl is in Melbourne NOW and was hoping to go to one of his lectures since i helped out with one of his research projects in Melb.

Google is no help
I did a search for you - no doubt you have already. But the only reference to any lectures was the EcoEdge Conference. Which looks very interesting in a very expensive kind of way.

If you find anything let us know. He is a very engaging speaker.
