While the coronavirus outbreak still has the world in its grips, we're seeing a slow and hesitant return towards lifting lockdowns/shutdowns. As people resume — in a limited way — the rituals of everyday life, public places will need to mould and adapt to the new normal. In fact, the very perception of "public spaces" is likely to change, and in many instances, this process has already begun.

This comic illustrates different attempts by designers and people around the globe to stitch existing spaces to fit into the post- COVID-19 world.
