Artribune TV / Architects and pandemia


March 2020

Alfonso Femia interviewed by Artribune on the current Covid-19 emergency.

“The emergency should not also become an alibi to forget that hospitals must be designed before pandemics. And that an architect can contribute very little to the real emergency, because that is the civil protection’s field to which we must give maximum support. The virtue of prefabricating, in few days, an intensive therapy unit, should not free us from taking on real responsibilities. The future, the day after the emergency, will have to identify a responsible vision and project, both national and international, that come from the territory and from its major social, economic and urban fragilities.” AF
