He described how Aretian’s Science of City Developed allows practitioners to better understand how cities function and can become more sustainable. He described the 3 Innovation Networks established by Aretian (Talent, Industries and Urban Infrastructure), as well as the findings of the most recent research paper developed by the Aretian team, which links City Typologies and Urban Design to Urban Performance. He also briefly explained the best practices in City Design, which focus on helping the Knowledge Economy flourish. Ramon then concluded his presentation with some recommendations to increase the quality of life of citizens through urban design following the core concepts and ideas of the 15-minute city.
