The Agenda


Architecture and design have always been inextricably linked to contemporary events. 

Historic moments in the 20th century such as World War I and the Spanish flu pandemic helped influence architects to design higher-quality housing and Garden Cities, creating more generous and healthier recreational spaces. 

So, how will the COVID-19 pandemic shape the design of the spaces in which we live, work and play? 

The Agenda with Stephen Cole explores the ways in which architects and city planners are responding to the crisis, investigating how pandemics could reshape our built environment in the near and distant future.
