The idea behind “15-minutes cities” is that within a short walk or bike ride people should have access to all necessary facilities that constitute the essence of urban living, such as parks, shops, cafes, schools, hospitals. Initiatives to transform cities according to this paradigm are currently being implemented across the world, in an attempt to make urban spaces more liveable, sustainable and community-oriented. However, a systematic understanding of the connection between urban form and accessibility is missing. In this project, as a first step to understanding the landscape of accessibility in Denmark, the student will create a large scale interactive visualisation of accessibility metrics.
