Although air pollution has negative effects on both public health and the climate, countless cities still have heavily trafficked roads – in the city centers. What kind of cities would we have if we turned these routes into new public urban spaces? We had the opportunity to develop a proposal for this.

The time has come for a different approach. We yearn to go back to normal. We yearn to stand cheek by jowl in public spaces, in restaurants, and at cultural and sporting events. Nevertheless, the coronavirus pandemic has given rise to changes that are likely to mean that our lives will never return to how they were before the crisis.
For many of us, the pandemic has shifted the focus of our lives to our homes. Social distancing has accelerated the growing trend towards remote working and e-commerce. We are now in or close to our homes for most of the day, every day. Increasing numbers of people are now visible and active in the neighbourhood, which can promote health, community, and local business.
Remote working and flexible workplaces were all up for discussion long before the pandemic struck. For many years, new technology and digitalisation have been blurring the boundaries of the traditional office. Now that people have more freedom to work from wherever they are and health is growing in importance, the workplace must be adjusted to continue to have value.
