In his traditional New Years’ photo-essay Iván Tosics writes about urban reactions on the pandemic. How did cities act with emergency measures in the spring and what could they preserve from their progressive interventions by late summer, when life seemed to go back to ’normal’?
’Never let a good crisis go to waste’ – this famous sentence is thought to be said by Winston Churchill. If we accept that a crisis is a good opportunity to make changes, cities should address those aspects of urban life which were drastically wrong and contributed to the crisis. How are cities doing that and what are the conditions for long lasting results – this is what Iván writes about, illustrating the story with many photos.
