The Covid-19 pandemic is way from being over; nevertheless, architects and designers are already starting to envision its effects on how buildings are designed and inhabited. The pandemic – particularly its lethal transmissibility that’s exacerbated by human proximity – exposed the fragility of the spatial arrangements and technologies that organize our lifestyle , be it within the home, the workplace, educational institutions, or shared cultural and civic activities. The accelerated integration of remote modes of communication thanks to social distancing challenges the very need for designating buildings to host productive and collective activities, and undermines the economy that relies on revenues generated from these activities. Moreover, the transmission mechanism of the virus is compelling architecture to deal with issues, like building environmental systems, that it’s traditionally delegated to technical advisers and experts.

The 2021 MiG international student competition involves submissions that explore the longer term of architecture during a post- Covid-19 world. The challenge set forth is to develop an ambitious thesis and explore its material, spatial, programmatic and cultural ramifications within the design of one building. The project must be detailed to the size of a building (i.e., 1:100 or 1:200) and include an evidence of the ideology behind the planning . the planning must address the wellbeing of the users and respect the building’s surrounding environment.
