Rethinking space and time in the contemporary city. New patterns for urban regeneration

Is it possible to put forward a new idea of proximity in urban contexts? In the words of Carlos Moreno, Professor at La Sorbona University in Paris, who first coined the 15-minute city concept: "That means transforming the space of a city, still highly mono-functional with various specialised areas, to multi-centred based on four main components – vicinity, diversity, density and ubiquity, to offer the essential social functions at a short distance”.
Andrea Riva, Project Leader at Park Associati and Jacopo Ognibene, architect specialised in Traffic and Sustainable Mobility planning, talk about the possibilities offered by urban regeneration and mobility planning with Flows, the thematic blog set up by NET Engineering International.
