Taking back the Street. COVID-19 as a Catalyst of shared Space

Agustina discusses some of the changes to streets, brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. She talks about the use of temporary infrastructure to redistribute the space of streets and how the pandemic is acting as a catalyst for something that has been happening for decades in other cities, in the quest for a healthier and calmer urban environment. A lecturer in architecture, Agustina has an interest in urban history and theory, specifically in the significance of local mixed streets, their fabric, histories and experiences. She studied architecture at Universidad de Buenos Aires, where she worked in research and practice. Continuing her research and design experience in the Netherlands, she completed a PhD in TU Delft studying the history of urban leisure waterfronts. Agustina then worked as a post-doctoral researcher in TUDelft and UCD Dublin.

She currently leads the StreetSpace project; an international and interdisciplinary project that studies local mixed streets, shedding light on the way streets are used, experienced and represented. StreetSpace is a collaborative studio unit in the Masters of Architecture, funded by the Department for Communities and supported by Belfast City Council. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
