BRIEF: Architecture Competition of Pandemic Dwelling at Archue challenges our core way of looking at our dwellings the house we live in in the light of ongoing pandemic. How our dwellings become the pandemic Dwellings to safeguard us from this out-break? What is a Dwelling? The Dwelling (A House) remains the place where we all spent most of the time of our lives and experience architecture, learn to connect it through emotions, it also saves us from various calamities and bring peace to our core. Corona virus is changing the way we look at our cities, our homes and our rooms. Our Dwellings were not built to handle our current needs. Most of us don’t have the luxury of a study room or a work space as we have never thought of it before, while some don’t have a recreational space for the family and a Balcony. In the absence of free movement, everyone is missing the sight of greenery. And to top it off, the lack of a multi-functional space that can be used by children and adults alike has never been more prominent. Many of us are suffering from the Problem of the Pets and their spaces. If how we live and interact needs to change, that should include how we’ve built and designed our homes.
