Worried more about the Skyline than the Sidewalk

Thanks to KillerKW for sending this interview of blog favorite 1) Jan Gehl, by blog favorite 2) Greg Lindsay at Fast Company who asks the right questions. Gehl responds with the right answers. Perhaps most interestingly, he returns to the human as the determinant unit of design and the way each experiences the world, particularly in places like Lagos, Nigeria or in China, where they think of cars as progress while the rest of world actually progresses by retreating from such mythos.
