XXV China Analysis Group Meeting: The post-Covid City: the Ongoing Spatial and Technological Reconfiguration in China and the World

july 15th, 2021

What will the post-Covid city look like? Has the trauma of the epidemic jeopardized the ideal of the compact city? For several decades, environmentalists, sociologists, economists and urban planners have fought hard to convince the world that a denser city is a better city.

Today, under the effect of the pandemic, new habits and new technologies seem to give new momentum to urban sprawl. This event brings together specialists situated at the forefront of urban thinking and action to discuss the forces at stake in the territorial reorganization of cities.
