Warsaw and Aarhus. Discussion on scenarios for sustainable future
„First Life, then Spaces, then Buildings—the other way round never works”, says a renowned Danish architect and urban planner, Jan Gehl. Denmark seems to have invented a recipe for turning cities into better, high-quality places to live. Is it just a result of a good PR—a hygge urbanism, as some critics call it in reference to another Danish flagship product—or there are in fact some strategies that are worth to be implemented in different latitudes?
During the roundtable discussion, hosting Stephen Willacy, the City Architects of Aarhus, and Marlena Happach, the City Architect of Warsaw, we will analyze how the Danish cities use architecture and urban planning to deal with current and future social and environmental issues, discuss the promises and dangers that come with the concept of livable cities, and see whether in fact we should all live the Danish way.
