15 (2014)

In celebration of our 15th birthday, we launched 15 ― an online guide to present day urban culture. Based in Singapore, 15 amplifies the urban sensibilities of its local people and 4 other cities, namely, London, New York, Tokyo and Shanghai, through user-generated city listings and informative journal features.

Building on the belief that cities are defined by its people, 15 works through a mobile and desktop friendly interactive platform that allows city dwellers to make submissions of their favourite cafes, bars, films, music and even travel destinations. A public voting system further self-curates submissions to filter out and display only the top 15 hits for any given category. As a result, all content is organic, dynamic, and most importantly authentic ― an accurate reflection of where the hearts of urbanites truly lie.

15 aspires to be more than a city guide. It aims to be a cumulation of memories, personalities and life stories. An online space that serves to inspire, educate and motivate readers to venture out of their comfort zones, challenge current perceptions and explore new realities. With 15, readers will be able to connect with like-minded individuals around the globe and build on their respective city cultures together.
