ANALYSIS OF THE 15 MINUTE URBAN SCENARIO IN THE CONTEXT OF SMALL AND MEDIUM-SIZED CITIES

PhD Abstract

The focus of current urban planning policies, which are constantly updating themselves with the changing world conditions, contain important clues on the transformation of 21st century cities. The concept of small and medium-sized cities, which is among the important concepts that came to the agenda within these changes, has found a place in the literature. Considering the many destructive and constructive effects of the Covid19 pandemic, which the whole world has experienced simultaneously in 2019, on cities and urban life, how small and medium-sized cities will be positioned in the future and how they will become centers of attraction has become an important research topic. In this context, it will be beneficial to discuss and examine new city concepts such as the 15-minute city that emerged from the reshaping of the city scales, in order to make future city scenarios more understandable.
