After a year and a half of the Coronavirus pandemic, our cities are no longer the same. There are almost no physical changes, but urban dynamics, control regimes and space management have changed radically. We are witnessing how the relationship between space and events is open and changeable: homes have become offices and classrooms, young people fought and conquered the new spaces for mass collective gatherings, large-scale conditioned interiors of shopping malls have temporarily taken on an unexpected role of a relatively safe environment for social encounters, parks and sports fields have increased in popularity… The discussions about new spatial regulations (and respective bio politics) also take on an ideological character: the left advocates more control and emphasizes collective solidarity while from the right we hear demands for more individual freedoms. What are the lessons of a global experiment of different levels of lock-down? Do often traumatic experiences of redistribution and reorganization of everyday life offer some positive lessons? Will some of the safety measures remain permanent? How much has the share of digital/virtual domain increased in everyday life? How much has Zagreb and Ljubljana changed during the pandemic? Did they prove resilient to crises, and if yes, why? How much can this resilience be planned and projected for the future?
