Stay a while! Strategies What factors contribute to the success of urban spaces? The
Danish architect and urban planner Jan Gehl posed this ques-

for the urban space tion back in the 1960s when he first investigated the behavior
of people on the streets and squares of our cities. In his book

Stay a while! Strategies for “Life Between Buildings” (1971) Gehl distinguishes three types
of outdoor activities: necessary, optional and social. His thesis

Urban Space is that the more a public space has to offer its users for spontaneous
neous activities and unplanned leisure, the more social life will
develop there.
In our current issue, we examine urban spaces that pos-
sess these qualities. The documentations illustrate the variety
in which we encounter such spaces today: as a market hall,
playground and community center, pedestrian bridge and an
inner courtyard on a university campus. We find urban spaces
not only between houses, but also in, at and on buildings as
well as along traffic roads. Many of these places are not only
for unspecific pastimes, but have a clearly defined function
and are based on a well-conceived spatial program. Inter-
disciplinary planning is usually indispensable for their success.
