Post-pandemic Transformation of Public Spaces and Buildings - Mamuka Salukvadze's opinions
After the pandemic, life will change. New inventions and standards should ensure that life is safe and enjoyable for people and profitable for business.
Mamuka Salukvadze, CEO of City Institute Georgia, commented on the issue:
"The world is responding to global challenges, as a rule, with global strategies and appropriate measures. I think the world's most severe pandemic and the associated socio-economic crisis will be no exception.
I believe that much more attention will be paid to security issues in general at the national level, especially in the urban environment. For the world of the 21st century, the so-called The development of resilient cities and settlements should become a major theoretical and practical task.
It is important that one of the conceptual directions of the renewed general plan of Tbilisi developed by us is the task of developing a resilient city. In the 21st century, in the event of natural or man-made disasters, various shocks and risks, including the spread of pandemics, the city must be prepared for operative and effective action, which must minimize possible damage and loss.
Balanced development of regions and large cities of the country, human-friendly environment, much more green and recreational space, public spaces available for pedestrians and cyclists, comfortable and competitive public transport, improved ecological condition of rivers in urban environment, opened river banks, sustainable and energy efficient buildings, ensuring the optimal density of development, etc., are the most important conditions that will provide even more urgency and importance in the urban environment, in the post-pandemic, post-crisis period.
