This book considers the implications of the emerging post-pandemic reality for public space and the built environment. It addresses changes to our cities, parks, neighborhoods, transportation modes, schools, streetscapes, cultural spaces, and engineering systems present in each of these. The chapters’ broad topics include public space and the built environment; tactical urbanism and temporality; designing built environments and hybrid remote spaces; engaging community and participation; connection with nature for mental health and wellness; the future of post pandemic space; and disaster preparedness. Recurring themes are design flexibility, repurposed cities, building standards, virtual connectedness, environmental vigilance, refocus on wellness and green space, gender perspectives, and community organization. It will be an important reference work for researchers, students and practitioners.

Kishwar Habib is a Post-Doctoral fellow at the University of Alberta. In addition to her academic pursuits, she is actively engaged in architectural practice both in Canada and Bangladesh. With a Ph.D. in Architecture from the Department of Architecture, University of Leuven obtained in 2019, Kishwar brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to her research and professional endeavors. One of her notable contributions to the field of architecture is her involvement in various international sustainable urban design projects that integrate architecture, open space-public space design, and planning. Her ability to bridge theory and practice enables her to make valuable contributions to both academia and the real-world implementation of design principles. Exploring ‘practiced’ and ‘lived-in’ architecture is an integral part of her research with a keen interest in public spaces and urban space, ethnographic research and fieldwork, sustainable design, and analysis.
