Le Corbusier once said, “Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light”.
Art and architecture are talents that are meant to be flexible not just according to your experience but also according to your needs. An excellent architect must be able to balance their creativity with the needs of time and people. With the emergence of pandemics, the world began to close in on itself, and architects sought to create spaces that would welcome and provide for everyone. Whether it’s spacious hospitals, well-ventilated living spaces, or an encased workstation, architects have always come up with innovative concepts to fit the changing times and as a result, their work infused soul into their ideals. Let’s explore how Covid times are reshaping these spaces…
As the Coronavirus started to spread over the world, the world found itself confined. With people going back in their cells, hospitals being overcrowded and the economy going downhill, architects found themselves at a difficult juncture of their careers. But nevertheless, they shaped their choices, ideas and made a flexible turn. Instead of just sitting back, they did what they do best: They built the space that people needed.
With upgraded style, views and structures they created spaces that not only matches the current demands of time but also focus on the design that enhances the experience of living in.
And so we bring you today four such architects and architectural design studios that are revolutionizing architecture in their own ways despite the setback of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.
