It’s fun to hear an architect criticize other architects for building “perfume bottles”. Gehl also makes some good points about evaluating what’s happening in public space rather than just assuming that what works in one city will work in another.
I love a good Jan rant. It is sad to see all the devestation that developers have done to American cities over the past half century. I can only dream of what cities would look like if holistic thinkers like Jan Gehl, Enrique Peñalosa, and Jane Jacobs would have been in charge.
