Special Screening of Jan Gehl’s “The Human Scale”


Over the years I’ve been influenced greatly by the work of Jan Gehl’s office. I’ve been helping CNUNE and the City of Somerville setup a special screening of the Jan Gehl documentary “The Human Scale” and am excited to announce that registration for the FREE showing went up today. Here is a link to all the details and to register for the January 30th showing at 6:30 at the Somerville Theater.

I’d like to give a big thanks to Ian Judge at the Somerville Theater for providing the theater for the show and for recognizing how important the subject of this film is to local efforts. I’d also like to thank Ian Stimler from KimStim for making this whole thing happen.

 

Leon Krier Lecturing in Providence

2009_11 Krier Miami BuildingSave the Date! Leon Krier, one of the most influential architects and urbanists of modern time, will be lecturing in Providence on December 3rd at the De Ciccio Family Auditorium on Brown University’s Main Green, 5:30 to 7:30 PM.  For years, I have enjoyed coming back to Mr. Krier’s books for inspiration and clarification.  His cartoons are some of the most memorable diagrams I have ever scene. They so elegantly capture the direction we should be taking the development of our built environment.  Having recently lectured in a building of his design, I can attest that he is master of light and space.  It will be a true honor having him spend a few hours in Providence with us.
