The pandemic has amplified many existing fragilities and inequalities, it has transformed our cities and villages. Some transformations are very welcome, others are strongly contested. Despite the global heartache, the pandemic has provided us with a unique opportunity to reconsider: How do we want to live? What are our values? What do we want and need in and from our cities, villages, offices, schools, hospitals, homes, streets, neighbourhoods, and public spaces?
