the problem statement

The world as we knew it will never be the same again, not our behavior, economies, transport systems and the list goes on…  The built environment should also be re-looked at. It is suggested that the spread of pandemics could be enhanced by our built environments. Urban and architectural design is mostly human centered and draw people together as social beings. The spread of pandemics flourish in these spaces.
