Here is our good friend, David Sim, proudly holding up the Danish translation of his fabulous book SOFT CITY. If a picture is worth a 1000 words then perhaps a drawing is worth a 1000 pictures. With hundreds of beautiful drawings, by David, Creative Director of Gehl People in Copenhagen, this book is priceless! This is a book that will transform settlements large and small throughout the world.
(Blød in Danish means soft or sensitive. By means ‘town’, as in so many place names, of Scandinavian origin. ‘Bye-laws’, or by-lags’ in Danish, similarly mean ‘town laws’. The self-regulation settlements is an historic and fundamental part of a their success.)
