IN THE NEW YORKER: "HOW THE CORONAVIRUS WILL RESHAPE ARCHITECTURE"

The New Yorker, Kyle Chayka, June 17, 2020

Kyle Chayka writes about how Architecture will be reshaped by Coronavirus, and asks what kinds of space are we willing to live and work in now? 

In a brief pandemic-era manifesto that he circulated among colleagues and friends, Holl wrote that architecture “should embrace our codependence.” Buildings can make us more aware of the ways in which we are globally connected—the pathways that spread the coronavirus but can also help us fight it, collectively. The earth’s health is inextricable from humanity’s; connections between the two can be cultivated in the design of a large-scale apartment building—like Holl’s Linked Hybrid, in Beijing, which interweaves public and private space—just as much as in that of a cabin."
