Sunaparanta - Goa Centre for the Arts presents Episode IV of ListenIN titled Health and The City: Re-thinking Urbanism, an interaction with Goan-born, Los Angeles-based architect, urbanist and professor Vinayak Bharne.
The Covid-19 pandemic is bringing human health and fragility back to our psychological forefront. In highlighting the interface between our well-being and the design of our built environments, it is making us realize that our pre-Covid-19 urban patterns were neither good for our health, nor that of our planet. It is changing our relationship with public life, public space, retail, recreation, transit, nature, and even our own dwellings. What does this mean for architects and planners, and for the future of our buildings and cities?
