COVID-19 has highlighted some of the biggest problems with the way we design our homes and the cities around them. But it’s also given us a chance to reset, reflect on, and amplify what is good about them. Rob Adams and Claire Martin believe that considered small footprint design can radically change the way we use our cities post-COVID. Particularly if we move away from the city centre being a hub for everything. Jefa Greenaway and Paty Rios want to make it possible for our suburbs to serve us in the way our city centres do now. From a 20sqm apartment to streets, blocks and suburbs, small footprint thinking gives us an opportunity to build inclusive, connected, happier cities that have the space for us all.
