Mikael Colville-Andersen (born January 29, 1968 in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada) is a Danish-Canadian urban designer and urban mobility expert. He is the CEO of Copenhagenize Design Company, which he founded in 2009, and he works with cities and governments around the world in coaching them towards becoming more bicycle friendly. He is a sought-after keynote speaker at design and architecture conferences and events around the world on the subjects of urbanism, liveable cities and bicycle history.He is known for his philosophy about simplifying urban planning and urban cycling and how cities should be designed instead of engineered. He is at the forefront of utilising observational techniques inspired by the likes of William H. Whyte for pedestrian and bicycle planning and has been called 'The Modern Day Jane Jacobs'. He employs anthropology and sociology in his work to develop liveable cities and, in 2012, he spearheaded the largest study of cyclist behaviour ever undertaken - The Choreography of an Urban Intersection - tracking the desire lines of 16,631 cyclists through an intersection in Copenhagen over a 12 hour period. His approach and philosophy have led to him being referred to as The Richard Dawkins of cycling by Peter Walker of The Guardian in 2014 interview with Esquire magazine in the UK, the Pope of urban cycling by Canadian newspaper La Presse and Austrian newspaper Der Standard, among others and the Bieber of urban cycling in an interview with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.Colville-Andersen has been instrumental in orchestrating the global bicycle boom, starting with what was later called The Photo That Launched a Million Bicycles in 2006, which led to the Copenhagen Cycle Chic photography and streetstyle blog in 2007. Regarding his early work with the Cycle Chic movement, The Guardian dubbed him The Sartorialist on Two Wheels.He coined the phrase Cycle chic in 2007, as well as the word Copenhagenize in the same year. He has also coined and popularised other phrases such as Bicycle Urbanism, Viking Biking, Citizen Cyclist and he started The Slow Bicycle Movement in 2008.Before embarking on a career as an urban designer, he was a film director and screenwriter. His debut feature film, Zakka West (2003), was the first indie film in Denmark and premiered at the Copenhagen International Film Festival. He has written and directed several short films, including the award-winning short Breaking Up (1999) and founded the first pan-European organisation for screenwriters - Euroscreenwriters - in 1997.As producer for The Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) bicentenary website for Hans Christian Andersen, he and his team won the Prix Italia award at the Radiotelevisione Italiana 57th Prix Italia for Best Public Service Website.In 2013 he made appearances in Edinburgh to help celebrate "bike week".In 2014, he was cited as one of the influential urban planners suggesting that radical solutions were needed if improvement was to be seen in respect to congestion problems in the city of York. He has also explained that cycle parking is needed for cities to be cycle-friendly. He was booked as a keynote speaker at the Velo-city Global conference in Adelaide in May 2014.
