How the pandemic will change architecture and urbanism
The way public spaces are designed could change in a post-pandemic world, along with how they’re prioritized in urban areas. As the pandemic has converted people into full time pedestrians, public spaces have been some of the few sources of leisure outside of the home. Sam Lubell of the Los Angeles Times argues that “we will eventually devote more resources to help us congregate and to strengthen our frayed community bonds, be it through parks, plazas, promenades or streets turned over to pedestrians.”
Throughout the world it is becoming clear that cities need to become more liveable for individual citizens - this means reducing or even eliminating traffic and at the same time bringing greenery back into the city - "urban gardening", as it is also called. In the course of urban restructuring, carefully planned and manufactured street furniture in its aesthetic and functional properties, contributes to making cities more liveable and attractive and to revitalising public spaces.
