Coronavirus destructs society. It breaks the connections and links between people. It is the per-fect storm. There is a strong belief that everything must be reinvented – from products, services, office spaces, schools, hospitals and stores. Post corona, reality will constantly revolve around the consideration of the public and viewing life from the public eye.

A quick reflection back to the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 and words of “bond” and “con-nect” resonate; however, in the world of COVID-19, we face the reality of “separation” and “isola-tion”. The focus always revolves around the measure of distance between people. The question asked is what is the effect of distance on us? Humans aren’t all the same and we are different, yet we co-depend and live with each other through our differences. How does the change of distance, from small to large affect us and how do we use this effectively to increase productivity to create the optimal society? This seminar will welcome Mr, Tetsuo Yukioka, an ER doctor, Mr. Kenryu Nakamura from the Advanced Academic Agency, as well as Mr. Jun Aoki and Mr. Manabu Chiba, architects from the Public Design Laboratory to explore their knowledge and insight from a perspec-tive of society-bonding public design. What we take for granted, we can change with our own hands.
