15-MIN BGC: A CONCEPT FOR EMERGING CITIES AND WORK SPACES
Now more than ever we put value to proximity. When the pandemic hit, everything immediately shutdown from public transportation, to leisure services, and offices. Movement is restricted as people are mandated to stay a close distance to their home.
Our way of life changed as we prioritized having essentials within reach and we are now more conscious of how we are spending our time. Hence, the 15-minute city concept became more relevant to us in rebuilding the way we do business.
What is a ‘15-minute city’?
The urban concept 15-minute city gained popularity in Paris, France and is defined by the ability to provide all human needs by walking or cycling within 15 minutes or less.
It aims to improve urban dwellers’ quality of life by reducing the burden of travel and having immediate access to jobs, education, healthcare, food, entertainment, and other activities and essentials. It involves deconstruction of the city and mixing many different uses of a single location, resulting in hybrid spaces such as high-rise and multi-purpose buildings and parks as venues for different activities.
The concept also promotes sustainable and ecological practices such as alternative transport through walking, biking, and scooting. This greatly contributed to lessen vehicle emissions, and increased residents’ health. It prioritizes pedestrian lanes, personal mobility device lanes, parks, and other people-first infrastructure.
15-minute city urban planners keep in mind to provide opportunities for economic development within the district by ensuring that residential, education, employment, and businesses are laid out on the master plan. This concept resulted in an accessible, independent, and emerging city for businesses who are looking for a strategic location to lease an office space.
