CHALLENGE

Our cities and buildings have always been shaped by diseases. It was cholera that influenced the modern street grid through the introduction of sewage systems that required the roads above them to be wider and straighter, along with new zoning laws to prevent overcrowding. Similarly, Pandemics like the Black Death, the Great Plague of London, the San Francisco plague, the Spanish flu, and others have a history of shaping cities and urban spaces and to what extent will cities be changed from the current pandemic is still uncertain.

In this COVID-19 situation of self-isolation, with shops shuttered, offices abandoned and urban centers reduced to ghost towns, participants are asked to rethink or design any kind of social space that might add value in Post-COVID-Transition. The design could be any kind of religious space/ market/ restaurant or an interface on an existing social space. The entire focus is to imagine what the post-COVID social space might look like.
