1 Maciej Siuda, Marcin Wicha
"Around Design in the New World".
Will lockdown change the approach to design? Are these changes likely to be sustainable? To what extent will it be the architects who will be able to get involved in the embodiment of a new world, a new order, and take advantage of the existing situation in such a way as to design responsibly, flexibly, in the spirit of circular economy, and above all serving to improve the quality of life in the urban environment?
2 Jerzy Szczepanik Dzikowski, Maciej Miłobędzki
"A rational approach in irrational times".
Will lockdown change the approach to design? Are these changes likely to be sustainable? To what extent will it be architects who will be able to engage in building a new world in a new order and take advantage of the existing situation in such a way as to design responsibly, flexibly, in the spirit of circular economy and, above all, serving to improve the quality of life in the urban environment?
3 Matthew Mastalski (Henning Larsen Architects),
Hugon Kowalski (Ugo Architects).
Sustainable city? Architectural competitions? Do these buzzwords open a can of problems facing architecture in a post-pandemic world, or are they rather effective ways to solve them? How to design cities today and who should do it? Architects or residents? Who has the right to the city? Who decides what it looks like and how we live in it? What values do we need in architecture to design well-functioning cities that don't contribute to the degradation of the planet and the ecosystem? Is sustainability now mainly a very catchy marketing slogan, and is there a place for it in the discourse on engaged architecture and urbanism?
We discuss the differences in urban design from the Polish and Danish perspectives.

Jan Sikora (Sikora Wnętrza Architektura).
