With 422 million global cases of diabetes, a scaled response must go beyond a diagnostic, clinical approach. Gehl’s foodscape studies create proactive & preventative strategies that target the shared link between the urban environment and food security to improve food access, quality of life, and community health outcomes across different cultures and geographies.
Market Street is more than the city's transit spine.
There is an urgent need to rethink our streets: how they’re designed and who they’re designed for. The National Street Service initiative delivered a forward-thinking approach to engagement that guides the transformation of streets into inviting public spaces for everyone.
We work with stakeholders at every scale—from public clients and foundations, to developers and private organizations—designing solutions to unique system-wide issues.Get in touch
Urban Strategy is the foundation upon which form, function and behaviour are created. Our holistic approach always starts with asking what life should exist in place, what spaces invite for that life, and what buildings and facilities support this. People and life first, always.
There is no business as usual here! By advancing people-first, evidence-based designs our Master Plans not only create the framework for great architecture to unfold, they create meaningful and memorable places that support quality of life for all.
Mobility is a key driver of urban transformation and quality of life. By approaching transportation and mobility challenges from a people-first perspective we help clients prioritize the human experience in everything from city-wide strategies to street corner improvements.
Public Life Data, the collection and analysis of qualitative and quantitative information about how people use and engage with public spaces, uncovers the true picture of how design impacts behavior. Our teams use this collected analysis to develop strategies and plans that foster more equitable, healthy and climate-positive lifestyles.
We empower leaders to drive positive change within their organizations by designing processes that facilitate engagement and prioritize the needs and experiences of individuals to enable systems-wide behavior change.
Gehl brings together some of the world’s leading urbanists across our offices in Copenhagen, San Francisco, and New York.
