A month or two ago we looked at COVID-19 as this distant virus spreading through foreign countries. That picture has changed. So far, we have recorded confirmed cases, deaths and recoveries within Nigeria. This quick spreading pandemic also came with sweeping changes to everyday Life as we know it. Changes to Social interaction, freedom of movement and personal hygiene. Like the rest of the world, we have had to react with restriction of movement, social distancing, limits to public gatherings and even complete lock down in the worst affected states.
Everyday Life as we know it has been interrupted, and architectural practices within the country haven’t been spared. How are architects coping with these restrictions and what are the challenges we face in keeping our practices running albeit temporarily during this period? How effective is working from home? How much interruption has this Pandemic brought to your Practice?
This survey is intended to find answers to these questions so we can look at positive steps to take in order to survive this period.
