Oct 5 marked World Architecture Day, which carried the theme “Toward a Better Urban Future” this year. It was celebrated concurrently with UN World Habitat Day, which featured a similar theme, “Housing for All: A Better Urban Future”. “Covid-19 is not the first, nor will it be the last, pandemic in the world. Humans are agile and highly adaptive. Despite being faced with several pandemics over the last decade, the numbers are showing increased human adaptability to tackling problems compared to the biggest pandemic in the early 20th century, the Spanish Flu, which claimed almost 50 million lives, ” said Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) president and architect Datuk Ezumi Harzani Ismail.

“In a nutshell, when designing for future development, the focus on humans and Mother Earth needs to be prioritised to reduce the impact on the environment. The pandemic helps to remind us of the fragility of our planet, but that's not all there is to it. The pandemic will not be the deciding factor, ” said Ezumi.
