REGISTER HERE: Experimental Webinar: Rethinking The Urban Contract


The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immediate impact on many aspects of how we live, especially in cities. The long-term implications of the pandemic are still being discussed and contested. Part of that process inevitably involves creating new questions and challenges to traditional ideas about urban living.

This 90-minute experimental webinar will bring together Fellows, friends and network members from both CCD and Salzburg Global Seminar to pool ideas and develop new provocations and ideas about the future of our cities. Participants will explore both the design and sociocultural changes in design and architecture as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

1.    Are we reworking the human-environment relationship towards a healthier future?
2.    What does democracy mean in the post-pandemic city?
3.    How have the traditional functions of urban environments  (work, home, transport, recreation) shifted?
