The 22th of August 2014 – within Lub design! (organized by Ewelina Kruszyńska, Warsztaty Kultury) an unusal walk was organized for children aged 6-10, intended to develop their multi-sensory sensitivity for the landscape of the city.  Enjoying being in your own city, exploring the surroundings and conscious experiencing it is very close to the idea of a ‘city for people’. Instead of traveling to exotic places, maybe it’s better to make our own city nicer? – Says Jan Gehl. Więcej

‘The city for people – utopia or…necessity?’

 //  Lub design!

The 14th of August 2014 – a meeting in Zielony Talerzyk restaurant was held as a part of Lub design! Project, with Ewa Gołębiewska on the subject directly inspired by The Year of Jan Gehl and his idea of ‘cities for people’ – ‘Human or inhuman cities?’ In some we feel good and welcome, chaos and noise in other makes us ill. Architect Jan Gehl called for creating public spaces in a way that they were made-to-measure human scale, they would inspire, while giving our bodies and senses relief.’

‘Is it difficult for you to walk around Lublin with a baby stroller? The green light on pedestrian crossing turns on extremely rarely and only when you push the button? You stumble on pavements broken by cars? On the 2nd of July 2014 in the Medial-Artistic Incubator of the Academic Culture Center ‘Chatka Żaka’ an open workshop had been held by Pedestrian Lublin.
