SEDA Green Drinks (Glasgow) - Film Night: "Humanscale"
Thursday, 26th February 2015 from 18:00 to 21:00
Venue: MAKLab, Charing Cross Mansions, 30nST Geoorge's Road, Glasgow G3 6UJ
50% of the world's population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this will increase to 80%. Life in a mega city is both enchanting and problematic. Today we face peak oil, climate change, loneliness and severe health issues due to our way of life. But why? The Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has studied human behavior in cities through 40 years. He has documented how modern cities repel human interaction, and argues that we can build cities in a way, which takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account. THE HUMAN SCALE meets thinkers, architects and urban planners across the globe. It questions our assumptions about modernity, exploring what happens when we put people into the center of our planning.
SEDA are delighted to host Jan Gehl's 'Humanscale' movie screening. See the trailer here.
The film will be introduced by Nick Wright who is working with Jan Gehl’s office on proposals for Glasgow's City Centre.
The film is more just over an hour long and will be accompanied with popcorn, the usual drinks and discussion. If you have any mobility problems, please contact us in advance on email@example.com. The seats are hard, you may choose to bring a cushion!
