It is now of worldwide interest to re-think how our cities will adapt to a post-COVID-19 era, and take the necessary actions. Understanding that social distancing is of vital importance, our various daily-life spaces will face an inevitable change. Considering the current situation which calls for proper architectural solutions in response to the unprecedented pandemic, The Seoul Metropolitan Government is developing innovative concepts for new built environments, city spaces, and landscapes, able to adapt to this post-coronavirus era. Aligned with this approach, Seoul City has recently held an international Competition for Architectural Ideas in order to prepare for the post-COVID-19 world. The contest gathered over 104 submissions from 15 different countries, of which the jury selected 4 winning works. With a variety of proposals highlighting the role of architecture in the midst of all these transformations, The Grand Prize was awarded to “The Invisible Facemask” by Hoang Nhat Anh, from Vietnam, the second prize to "School Zone" and the third prize was awarded to two different proposals, "Bus-Restaurant" and "Everybody's mine".
