Written by renowned architect Jan Gehl and public space expert Birgitte Scarre, How to Study Public Life draws from their combined experiences of over 50 years to provide a history of public-life study as well as methods and tools necessary to orient urban planning towards more livable human-scale design. They share examples and lessons learned from working in Copenhagen, New York, Sydney and other cities around the world and demonstrate how the quality of urban public spaces can lead to dramatic changes in how cities develop. Equal parts informative and inspiring, this book is a must for anyone interested in improving city life.
