The sudden COVID-19 pandemic crisis quickly interfered with people's regular, everyday lives all around the world. Many different professional and commercial areas are being impacted, and the unexpected health catastrophe has put the whole globe on an unheard-of halt.
The influence of the pandemic on architecture is discussed by Dr. Benny Kuriakose, who also explains how architects may help create a sustainable built environment for future generations. Dr. Kuriakose emphasises the "long-term consequences" the worldwide viral epidemic bears on the "real estate industry and architecture," saying that the "construction field is one of the hardest affected because of the pandemic." He goes on to discuss post-pandemic architectural design techniques and further explains the notion that "Conservation and Development Must Go Together."
He emphasises the necessity of conserving old buildings, and he adds that there is a great opportunity for conservation architects to work here since most of the buildings were built more than 50 years ago with vernacular building materials like timber, lime, and brick. He also explains how ecology is related to architecture and reminds us of the fact that without nature, there is no architecture.
Both those who are interested in conservation and those who are passionate about architecture will benefit from this in-depth and instructive discussion on the COVID-19 influence on the architectural industry and other sectors.
