Virtual meeting May 7th 2020

On 7 May 2020, we met online to discuss the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Architecture’s Afterlife project and the request for an extension to the British Council. The pandemic has forced us to rethink the timeline and modality of the project due to travel restrictions and place-in-shelter orders. We discussed the members of the External Advisory Board and the importance of ensuring diversity and inclusion. The partners also presented the compilation of an accurate analysis of the first survey launched in January 2018. This analysis will be included in the Architecture’s Afterlife website and it allows the partners to formulate the second survey to be launched in fall of 2020. The partners have also made some significant progress on the design of the website.
