Jan Gehl is one of the founding voices about designing cities around people, and creating safe comfortable cities from the perspective of walkers and bikers. The people who work with Jan are pretty interesting too, and I count the time I spent in New York City with Gehl’s architectural partner Camilla van Deurs as one of the most creative and productive on how to create walkable places. Now you can too can work with the Gehl office in New York City.

A great opportunity.
Sounds like a dream job. And occasionally rubbing shoulders with the world’s pre-eminent urbanist? Priceless. This position will garner a tremendous amount of worldwide interest.
