Peta de Jager will be discussing the topic:
"COVID-19 in the African City: Speculations and Provocations on Future Roles for Architects"
Humans spend increasing time in human-attenuated environments. The role of these transformed environments on human health and well-being has been thrust into public consciousness through the COVID-19 pandemic with its spatial, networked, engineering and design drivers. This compounds the rude realisation that building activities <routinely> exploit limited resource endowments,  violate geological and ecological substrates and threaten our future. With these perspectives, can architects play a role in crafting a better future?
