The text published in Gazeta Wyborcza concerning the assumptions of ‘Gehl’ thinking for Lublin, Lublin’s traditions of a ‘city for people’ in the works of Romuald Dylewski*, who created the first post war city plan of Lublin and initiated the Forum for Culture of Space. We are very proud that after 9 years from this event we are able to support his efforts for improving space in Lublin with the ideas of Jan Gehl.
