Renowned Danish architect and city planner Jan Gehl gave an evening lecture to an audience of over 400 people at NLA last night. The event also marked the UK launch of Jan Gehl's new book Cities for People.

For more than forty years Jan Gehl has helped to transform urban environments around the world, including Copenhagen, Melbourne, Sydney and - most recently - New York. Introduced by Lord Richard Rogers, he spoke about the changes in city planning from the 1960s to today, and how quality of public spaces and 'cities for people' can be achieved.
