Pandemic offers an opportunity to rethink the shape of our cities
While offices won’t disappear, the move to remote working means there is now a chance to put people and sustainability at the heart of urban planning
Ireland’s cities have been greatly affected by the pandemic and that has raised questions about how we can repurpose our urban areas to provide a more rounded working experience.
Demand for physical offices may not reduce, but existing spaces could be used differently.
With companies allowing for a mixture of in-office and remote working, a new model of the blended office should emerge meaning fewer people in offices and more space for individual workstations.
