CONCEPT OF 15-MINUTES CITY
A 15-Minutes city is a model of urban development and urban mobility. This concept was initially developed by Professor Carlos (Moreno, 2021). And, the idea was promoted by Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo. The 15-Minute City is a city in which all residents can reach daily necessities within a short walk or bike ride from their homes (within 15 minutes of distance). (Carlos 2021), has identified six essential faction to be available within 15-minutes city. Including, living, work, commerce, health, education, and entertainment.
FMC is working as a model of linking people to their neighborhood and localizing. In fact, it brings activities to neighborhood rather than pushing people to activities. And, based on some principals such as walkability, density, diversity and multiple use of resources (Pozoukidou & Chatziyiannaki, 2021)
All in all, the primary focus of FMC is on the proximity, which aims to create a neighborhood where all the residents can access the basic needs within 15 minutes walking or biking from homes
