June/July 2020: Post-Pandemic Plans
AN’s June/July issue focuses on how the COVID-19 pandemic could change cities as we know them. The leading feature spotlights the efforts of architects and designers to rethink healthcare spaces, shared outdoor areas, and commercial zones for a post-pandemic future. Another feature explores what will become of office towers in central business districts as so many office workers continue to tap away at their keyboards from home. Lastly, spatial investigators Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley discuss their forthcoming book on quarantine urbanism.
Also in the issue, letters from architects in Minneapolis respond to the recent protests over the killings of Black people and systemic racism in the United States.
The windows and walls products supplement gathers the latest hygienic designs from manufacturers and fabricators, highlighting offerings like touchless door openers, office partitions, and antimicrobial hardware, which will likely be in demand for the near future.
