Professor Carlos Moreno, is the architect of the idea of the 15 minute city – this was picked up last year by the World Economic Forum and as part of a global TED talk conference. The idea of being able to get all our urban necessities within a 15 minute walk has clearly gained traction across the world.
This podcast explores how the idea is being implemented, focusing on the Corona pistes for cycling in Paris and on recent measures to trial schools as multi-purpose buildings.
The impact of Covid is part of the discussion and looks at imaginative ways of rethinking how art and shopping can interact.
Professor Moreno says in the interview:
Because the museums are closed with have the opportunity to invite artists to present their exhibitions in the supermarket within a new kind of organisation. I think that this is a very good idea because we can show that it is possible to transform: this is a kind this is a kind of local a tactical urbanism.
We wish to implement for transforming into vibrant city of proximities for Corona-pistes for example is today a very popular and concrete realisation because we have been considering that it is totally necessary. It will keep in permanence the bike lanes built for the period of lockdown in Paris
