The Coronavirus pandemic is omnipresent in our society, where ‘social distancing’ neglects our everyday’s life and our common behaviour patterns. Schools and shops are closing, we all work from home and visit neither family nor friends. This is a challenge, as social interaction and discussion is key for the urban planning domain since local knowledge and participation have a huge impact on the process and the outcomes of a project.
Together with Zebralog, we were facing this issue and asked ourselves the following questions:
- How could we enable stakeholders to give us feedback and input in our current projects without a ‘face to face’ interaction?
- Which are the outcomes of a remote format?
- Can these formats act as a role model with the goal to implement them in future projects?
