Among the many ways the coronavirus pandemic will change our world may well be in the way we design our “built environment,” especially our cities.
If you walk out in Manhattan or Washington, D.C., these days (keeping an eye out for any demonstrations), you can already see profound changes. For one thing, the streets are often quiet and empty of cars. Even after any “reopening,” some of these changes may persist. For better or worse.
So this may be a good time to reflect (and report and write) about what changes we may see in city design in a post-COVID-19 world.
