As the pandemic of 2020 quickly changes our normal way of living to a life full of protective gear, staying at home, and physically avoiding others, what will the world be like after the pandemic is over? How will the pandemic effect the way that architecture is designed and built?

In this episode, Tim talks about the changes that we’re already seeing in architecture from the materials that buildings are made of to the layout of different spaces. Mike and Tim brainstorm the different ways that architecture will change after the pandemic is over and the quick transition to automated technologies, larger spaces, and different airflow requirements.

They also discuss the idea that many cities might begin to install more security cameras and heat detection radars to determine people who may be sick to quickly contain the spread of viruses in the future. Later in the episode, Mike and Tim talk about the current work culture during the pandemic and how it may lead to an increasing search for prefabricated backyard office spaces to separate work from home.
