One’s behavior is the main social engine that drives changes and modifies the social group`s behavior. Social distancing is on long term one of the Covid-19 pandemic consequence. This can be just as important as loneliness due to ageing or other disruption on usual human behavior. This may be another issue added to a yet long list of actual social comportment.
Even before this pandemic arose, the normal path of life was disrupted by globalization and by the digital communication, but now we are experiencing a new kind of social interaction and physical distancing.
As always architecture will follow the social transformation, and hopefully it will not be too late to really be capable to intervene. The future architecture has to be capable to create safe spaces, that are open to the neighborhood and at the same time to connect to the rest of the world.
