ISSUE 33 - PANDEMIC URBANISM
There is a lot to discuss about the types of changes the Coronavirus pandemic could bring to cities. Some of these could be subtle spatial changes, triggered by social measures of estrangement, confinement and isolation, while others could be articulated in new ways of social interaction and domestic activities. There will certainly be long-term effects on politics, socioeconomics, culture and the environment.
This issue of MONU addresses the effects of pandemics on cities, both today and in the past, by analyzing their urban impact, but also looking for new ideas and approaches that improve our relationship with the current situation in these strange times.
