By Jan Gehl

Seit mehr als forty Jahren befasst sich der Architekt und Stadtplaner Jan Gehl damit, Plätze, Straßen, ja ganze Stadtviertel zum Wohle der Bewohner neu oder umzugestalten. Er stützt sich dabei auf Erkenntnisse, die er durch langjährige Untersuchungen von Großstadtsituationen in verschiedenen Ländern gewonnen hat.

Dabei finden demografische Entwicklungen und sich wandelnde Lebensstile ebenso Berücksichtigung wie gestalterische Prozesse. Wichtigster Grundsatz für Jan Gehls Stadtplanung nach menschlichem Maß: Der Stadtraum muss mit der Geschwindigkeit eines Fußgängers erlebt werden statt aus einem Fahrzeug heraus. Nur so kann es gelingen, sowohl traditionelle Metropolen wie die schnell wachsenden Städte von Entwicklungs- und Schwellenländern zu Städten für Menschen zu machen.

Das Buch präsentiert Jan Gehls Arbeit im Bereich Neubau sowie der Umgestaltung städtischer Räume und Verkehrsflächen. Darstellungen seiner Planungsmodelle in textual content und Bildern sowie Planungsprinzipien und Methoden veranschaulichen, wie einfach lebendige, sichere, nachhaltige und gesunde Städte in Zukunft entstehen können.
