EDITOR’S COMMENT & CONTENTS Freedom or Awareness?


A


s the great “Freedom Day” hit last month, I began to wonder what was so freeing about it. Was it the dropping of social distancing rules, being able to see friends and family again without testing one’s mental arithmetic skills? Was it being able to show those old-fashioned signs of affection for the first time in 18 months to people outside our bubble? Is it just the ability to choose if and when you wear a mask?


Never before has public/ social health been so high on the agenda for buildings (other than hospitals and those designed for such thought) but this pandemic has only highlighted how crucial an aspect of design social health is.


Architects in the past who focussed on the health side of design might have been considered more “hippy” than practical. As populations grow, so too do the risks and the need for better technology to prevent and protect before anything like this has the chance to put the world on hold again.


Individuals are hopefully now more aware of their health in public spaces than ever before. Perhaps the pandemic means an end to listening to the endless hacking of someone on the train or the careless throwing of litter and biohazardous waste in the street. Could that be too much to hope for?
