What should we do if they want to be happy? Interview with Studio Jan Gehl



During Our Happy Life, we pose questions to architects and thinkers to expand on topics we encountered during the research. In this video, we interview Blaine Merkel, Anna Muessig, Mayra Madra, David Sim and Julia Day of Studio Jan Gehl, and discuss topics including: including how do new ways to “measure” happiness compare to the kinds of quantification the Gehl office has always used; whether rankings-driven competition between cities is a good or a bad thing, from the perspective of an international practice; if Copenhagen is more of a model or a method for them, and how its lessons are applied in other contexts; and whether their clients are asking about happiness.
