How people live and work in the city have been slowly but surely changing even before COVID19, as evinced by the increasing popularity of flexi-work arrangements and online shopping (due largely to the emergence of new communicative technologies and logistical innovation). This project investigates the extent to which COVID19 accelerates these sociospatial processes and the probable impacts they have on the city as we know it. The project comprises of three interlinked themes: “The Future of Office”, “Living in the Future” and “Sustaining the Magic of the City Centre”.
