Abstract

Throughout history, epidemics have often generated advances in architecture and urban development. Today, Covid-19 has questioned housing by undermining the certainties of modern culture. The pandemic has forced us to slow down the pace and change our priorities: private and public spaces have revealed their shortcomings, both in quantity and quality. The paper listens to the voices that have appeared in the press and on websites in recent months on the relationship between architecture, city, and Coronavirus, intersecting critical issues and proposals for the future from different perspectives. The visions are sometimes opposed but often converge on the need for urban renewal at every scale. Following the sociologist Sennet, it could represent an unmissable opportunity to rebalance spaces and relationships, smooth out social and economic inequalities and guarantee a more sustainable existence for all.
