“We need to reimagine…”, “we need to reimagine…”. How many times have we heard these 4 words in the last 1000 zoom sessions? From coerced co-habitation to broken logistic flows, this locked-down world is neck-deep in spatial issues. Then why are architects, masters of spatial intelligence, left screaming their solutions underwater? For one last time, let’s not waste this crisis and dig openly into our defaults. To debunk them, often all it takes is a: “Yes, but why?” The aftermath of the pandemic will result in another long global transition, and architects cannot afford to waste time feeding golden calves. Before we operate, this time we must change the default settings.
