On January 1st, 2020, the world woke to news that a pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, China, had been identified as a strain of coronavirus. By March, a pandemic had been declared and the world was under ‘lockdown’. Under lockdown conditions the relationship between health and the spaces we inhabit became central. It is expected to alter the way we behave in public, redefine how we approach public health and change the design our cities forever. While it is tempting to see this recent global concern about health and the design and use of the built environment as new, the reality is, it has a long history. The public health profession was born from the housing conditions of the 19th century urban poor. ‘Sick building syndrome’ has been a concern for years. Demands for walkable neighbourhoods are long standing. Housing for the elderly, accessible design, and the broader healthy cities agenda globally, all pre-date COVID-19. Reflecting this, the Environments by Design Conference seeks interdisciplinary perspectives on the relationship between public health, our cities and our buildings that reflect the emerging scenario but also the plethora of other issues at play.
