By City Space Architecture


City Space Architecture is a proud partner of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences for the European project From Prevention to Resilience: Designing Public Spaces in Times of Pandemics, developed in cooperation with leading international Universities, such as Harvard University, The Bartlett at UCL, University of Sydney, and with high level professional organizations, such as UNStudio, Pakhuis de Zwijger, The Beach, and with PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency.

This project will explore and investigate the question: how can design interventions in public space for the 1.5-meter society also contribute to strengthening social and ecological resilience?

Through a combination of desk research, expert sessions with an international community of practice and research-through-design interventions, this research project aims to go beyond the purely practical prevention approach and explore how Covid-19 measures can be linked to making neighborhoods more resilient, both socially and ecologically.

The project seeks to establish an analysis and design framework with which the effective principles of digital and physical interventions for the 1.5-meter society at the neighborhood level can be analyzed and designed with regard to their potential for social and ecological resilience. In addition, an (inter)national community of practice will be set up in the form of an interdisciplinary learning network, which will contribute to the development of the analysis and design framework. Through this process, the project will also contribute by sharing and disseminating the findings and results of this project among professionals in the Netherlands and worldwide.

City Space Architecture is in charge to disseminate outcomes of the projects, also through the publication of a special issue of The Journal of Public Space.


Partners are currenlty collecting and discussing a number of international case studies on urban resilience, as a reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.
