Logic of City: People and communities need green open spaces, and they have to be accessible. There must be pocket parks scattered all around the city where people can go there by a short walk or by biking. In these pocket parks, people can relax, socialize or just get fresh air. These pocket parks will function as lungs and cooling elements of the city, reducing the heat island effect and improving the over all quality of the urban environment.
The same way businesses and organizations need people to function. People that make up the company or organization should be able to reach their work places just by walking or biking. This will reduce transport demand that rely on fossil fuels, making the city environment cleaner, healthier and more productive. For this to happen, we must create places for people to live in the city where they can just take a short commute, bike or walk to their work places.
