19th edition of the research conference on constructions, economy of buildings, architecture, urban and territorial development
Effects of COVID-19 pandemics on urban planning, architecture, and constructions: crisis or opportunity?


13 May 2021
The current COVID-19 crisis confronted the entire humanity with unprecedented challenges. The changes implemented in order to prevent the spread of the virus affected all fields, and are likely to affect the future activities, rethinking them for a long period ahead. All the activities take now place in new ways. Starting from here, the objective of the conference is to cause a reflection upon the challenges of urban planning, architecture, and civil engineering during the crisis times, focusing on whether these changes could be used as an opportunity to redesign the activities in a better way, answering other existing demands due to the problems that have been looking for solutions.

The event will be organized online by the National Institute for Research and Development in Constructions, Urbanism and Sustainable Spatial Development URBAN-INCERC as a virtual conference with oral communications, not to exceed 15 minutes (including the questions), presented via share screen in moderated sessions.
