After the crisis that has just gone through the world, several questions will have to be asked of decision-makers, in particular the conditions of confinement in very narrow dwellings and devoid of living spaces or confinements elsewhere.
Private or public outdoor spaces are also lagging behind in view of partial containment
Living spaces for relaxing work and other shops have proven their limit in facing this pandemic and therefore the next.
The idea competition is a kind of white paper for future generations who will have to face more deadly crises than those already experienced….
The car will no longer have its place in ten years which suggests that the current parking spaces would be dedicated to other functions
Sickle energies will be abandoned for their rarity or ineffectiveness, which suggests that households should obtain other sources of energy
Human reflexes will be modified and more people would spend their time at home so the notion of street and the philosophy of mobility will have to be rethought.
The drone, an essential element of tomorrow's life, will take up more space in people's lives, so it would be wise to reverse current reflexes
Should we think of housing spaces at the bottom of the buildings and the workspaces above?
This trend seems to me to assert itself day by day because fear seems to be effective in taming the indomitable!
“In this period of health and economic crisis linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, all models are upset and the questions of how to think of the city, housing, territories, in the light of current events, imagine the future, are essential.
"How to take advantage of this crisis and the step aside that it forced us to take to find new answers to better adapt our cities and our territories to environmental, social challenges and to face, in a resilient way, threats with certain occurrences but with unpredictable forms? " But also,
"In what ways, in the light of this health, economic and social crisis, do researchers question our living conditions, our lifestyles, and, more broadly, do they invite us to modify our thinking frameworks on the city? ? " Thinking after Covid-19 is asking the question of how this crisis is revealing and above all, how can us make it fertile with new, positive ideas for society. With confinement, the sector of the living environment is on the front line. "
