Abstract

In the beginning of the pandemic, there was one internet meme circulating around the social media that says, ‘Until now, the best vaccine against Covid-19 is made by architects.’ Of course, architects have no literal capability nor the capacity to create the so-called ‘best vaccine’ against COVID-19 or anything in that nature. The wishful remark is just referring to our homes, which were indeed made by architects. The rhetoric does not only imply that people would be much safer when they were at home, but it also hints the importance of architecture and the idea of a personal space. In a much larger context, this ‘new normal’ may have just redefined how we look at and reconnect with our space. Architects could be inspired simply by observing how people are exploiting or behaving around their space in the mid-pandemic era.
