Post-pandemic cities

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


The coronavirus pandemic changes everything we think about cities. Or does it? Will we be diving straight back into the urban crowd post-lockdown, as if nothing has changed? Will we flee the city altogether? Are we discovering new cities we hadn't experienced before?

Is the pandemic simply exaggerating pre-existing racial and cultural inequalities in cities? Or is the disruption from COVID-19 a chance to move towards a more equitable place in which to live?

A discussion about urban architecture, its history and future in the light of the virus with Suzanne Ewing (Professor of Architectural Criticism, University of Edinburgh), Christoph Lindner (Professor of Urban Studies, The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London), and Richard J Williams (Professor of Contemporary Visual Cultures, University of Edinburgh).
