What do resilient and beloved places have in common? There are many aspects, but it all comes down to the human experience. A place is tied to social and human constructs. Its success is about the feelings and memories it evokes, and the type of individuals it brings together.
Just as the pandemic is redefining how we live, it is changing our perceptions of place and challenges us to rethink the design and functionality of our built environment. Once fit-for-purpose buildings will face new demands post-pandemic, it’ll raise questions around usage and typology. We’ll be forced to consider how we reconfigure existing assets and shape future ones to better withstand crisis and change.
Please tune in and join our placemaking and design experts as they address this and discuss how mixed-use developments can be transformed to embody a higher level of resiliency in the future.
