Designing cities after COVID-19

And you thought that cancelling Xmas might be a problem? Listen to what the bright guys are talking about..

“We are living through a social experiment on a global scale, but what happens when whole countries and continents ‘shut down public life’ and ask people to stay at home? As we start to plan for living with COVID, the way that we design our buildings and plan our cities must be rethought. To control disease transmission we may need to segregate areas of our cities from one another – and walk or cycle within smaller neighbourhoods instead of mass transit at a larger scale. We must restart the economy but without the face-to-face interaction on which it has always relied.”

Does Professor Allen Penn – University College London think that we are never going to be rid of this pest, or are we being herded into another sheep pen?
