On May 6, an online conference of the Urban Awards took place on one of the most pressing topics of today: "How will cities change after a pandemic?" Leading architects and urbanists discussed the future of large megacities and small towns, shared their views on the strategy for organizing residential development and the transformation of the basic components of the urban environment, and also answered questions that concern the professional community and all citizens.
During a lively discussion, the speakers touched upon the viability of large and small businesses in the current situation, the need to develop new technologies, services and platforms, and also discussed possible changes in the organization of public spaces in the new “quarantine” world through the prism of world experience.
