The Pandemic is a Portal: The Outdoors

Presented in partnership with Landscape Forms

Social distancing has disrupted one of the strongest trends in design—the prioritization of common areas and public spaces. Recent research has shown strong connections between outdoor space and human wellbeing. Meanwhile, the smart cities movement has opened up new possibilities for our streets, plazas, and parks. As we look past COVID-19 and towards the reopening of our cities, how can we leverage design and technology to ensure the vitality of outdoor and public spaces?

The Pandemic is a Portal: Inclusivity

Crises like COVID-19 reveal both challenges and opportunities for marginalized groups. People with disabilities and senior citizens now have to navigate new health risks in the spaces where they live and work, yet the spread of remote working might also open new possibilities for them. How can architects and designers make sure to include the concerns of people of all ages and abilities, as we plan for the future?

Other transit models—from ridesharing to driverless cars—will also have to adjust to the new normal. How will COVID-19 shape the future of mass transit and mobility?
