Jan Gehl book presentation in Riga

For more than forty years Jan Gehl has helped to transform urban environments around the world based on his research into the ways people actually use—or could use—the spaces where they live and work. In his revolutionary book “Cities for People”, Gehl presents his latest work creating (or recreating) cityscapes on a human scale. He clearly explains the methods and tools he uses to reconfigure unworkable cityscapes into the landscapes he believes they should be: cities for people.


We are happy to announce that “Cities for People” has been translated into Latvian by Inga Mežaraupe thanks to Jāņa Rozes apgāds, Statens Kunstfond and Realdania. The presentation of the book will happen on May 31 at 21:00 in the concert hall Godvil, Riga. Jan Gehl is going to be present during the presentation so you have the chance to get the author signature on your book! Which is, by the way, will be available with a special discount only during the event.

The entrance is free of charge.
