See now the pandemic has become for many cities a new Intro that defines the change in the daily lives of its inhabitants. About how to change practice use of urban areas and how spatial design can help to protect citizens, in the article “Kommersant” said the managing Director of KB Strelka Anastasia Shcherbakova and expert on the spatial dimension of this company Mrs. Natalia Shavkunova.Epidemiological safety is a new model of existence, which is necessary right now and which should come up. As shown, it was not invented earlier works: more than 5 million people in 188 countries got infected COVID-19, about 3 billion people sit at home in quarantine for up to 6 million unemployed will appear projected in the near future, while the world economy will lose $5.5 trillion in the next two years due to the effects of the pandemic. The reaction is very expensive.Here, as we have seen, the achievements of the urban lifestyle entail unforeseen risks.Guidance on epidemiological safety, design today are addressed primarily by the residents of the cities with the expectation of changes in their behavior. Recently prepared in the UK plan “return to work” was criticized by trade unions for the lack of a clearly defined safety rules and optional — in the current version of the document most of the actions are at the discretion of the employer that threatens the life and health of employees.In the new reality will demand solutions that allow to localize the recommendations of the Ministry of health to adapt existing urban systems (transport, trade, educational, cultural and other) to the situation of the pandemic so that they can function with minimal risk of transmission of viral infections. Here is an example of a complex influence on the urban environment to overcome the crises. In 1997 the Swedish Parliament approved a programme for improving road traffic safety Vision Zero, which reduced the death rate in traffic accidents by more than 50%. The traditional system of traffic management means that the majority of accidents are caused by road users, therefore special attention is paid to the behavior of the driver, which led to the accident. The fundamental difference between Vision Zero is that the focus is on the design of the transport system. The creators of the project was guided by the idea that ideal people do not happen, but human error on the road should not cost lives.Of the published studies on the nature of the coronavirus known that specific parameters of the premises can reduce the likelihood of infection. For example, the ventilation of our officesin and commercial premises, as a rule, is switched off at night, allowing pathogens to accumulate. Changing the location and mode of operation of the ventilation system can significantly reduce the amount of harmful pathogens in the room.In turn, the spatial analysis tools allow to identify places with the most intensive flows of users — risk points and match them to appropriate solutions.Specialists in urban development already has experience in the analysis of the intensity of the movements and design of buildings on the basis of scientific modeling. Thus, spatial analysis of the premises of the Victoria and albert Museum, the British Museum and Royal festival hall in London helped to distribute the flow of visitors and staff, and analysis of the 31 admissions of the hospitals of the National health service of great Britain made possible the development of recommendations to improve the quality of interaction between doctor—patient and the quality of health care provision.The nature of the spread of infectious diseases depends on the intensity of contacts between people. Of seat the daily crowds and closed spaces — hot spots of the spread of viral infections. The transformation of the public buildings on the basis of the spatial modeling of complex change trajectories of movement of visitors and the installation of special equipment in identified hazardous points — will reduce the number of hot spots in the city and to adapt the premises to the epidemic so that the citizen did not have to doubt their safety. Today we need to pay more attention to reduce the risks associated with the characteristics of the urban environment. The structural transformation of the urban spaces in which we interact with other people, can lead to long-term increase in the level of epidemiological safety. Spatial solutions can effectively reduce the risks of transmission of viral infections and help bring the city to life.
