HUA HUA Architects has imagined a proposal that can reconcile people and public spaces, post Covid-19. The Gastro Safe Zone program aims to awaken stagnant gastronomic businesses by regulating outside eating and ensuring the required social distancing measures. The first prototype has been already installed in the streets of Brno in the Czech Republic. While social distancing has proved to be the most effective way to fight a pandemic, it has a lot of impact on our economy, our public space use, and on the gastronomy sector. In order to find common grounds, HUA HUA Architects has developed a space grid initiative that transforms public spaces into safe and defined zones, where people can eat outside without spreading the virus. With the purpose of regulating outside eating, the initiative calls for cooperation with authorities for a safe return of the gastro businesses.
