This week, The Boedecker Theater at The Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO 80302, is screening The Human Scale. From The Dairy Center for the Arts:
50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, by 2050 it will be 80%. Cities have become the primary human habitat, and if we are to make them sustainable and livable we must re-imagine the very foundations of modern urban planning. Rather than examining buildings and urban structures themselves, visionaries study the in between spaces of urban life: the places where people meet, interact, live, and behave.
Stunningly photographed, Director Andreas Dalsgaard’s film travels around the world to explore how Gehl and other like minded designers, city planners, and urban activists have begun to transform such cities as diverse as New York, Beijing, Christchurch, and London.
