Gísli Marteinn Baldursson is the Loeb Fellowship’s first talk show host. He’s also a bicycle warrior who’s been mounting a crusade against urban sprawl and in favor of urban densification in Reykjavík. He successfully campaigned to scrap a planned superhighway in favor of a bicycle superhighway, and during his term on the city council, he championed a Bicycle Master Plan that promotes livable streets. Watch his Loeb Video Profile to understand why heating bicycle lanes makes sense in the world’s northernmost capital.
The Loeb Fellowship initiated the Video Profiles project in 2012 to enable current Loeb Fellows to tell their stories, what motivates them and how the Fellowship has been meaningful for their work. Maggie Janik, GSD Multimedia Producer, and Joanne Nerenberg, Loeb Affiliate ‘12, are directing the project.
