  • Generated data models, performed various forms of analysis and helped produce reports outlining results.
  • The goal of this research was to develop a solution to understand how our urban living and working settings begin to mingle as Architecture and the Built Environment change with the repercussions of SARS-CoV-2, otherwise known as COVID-19.
  • Much of the development came through online research of architectural firms and their response to dynamic change, various personal insights to how people are reacting to their current inhabited space across the world and even precedents of how history responded to previous outbreaks.
  • After extensive analysis, findings from a literature review show that individuals are anxious about large city settings, but they need not be. Urban density is not the issue, simply the quality of the environment itself. The findings may be useful in redesigning urban spaces and buildings.
