Fitter, stronger and better

Fitter, stronger and better

Chris Williamson

When Chris was asked to work with Andrew Weston for group projects at Leicester School of Architecture (for no other reason than they were next to each other alphabetically) he discovered that their skills dovetailed perfectly. Their shared ambition made for a perfect business partnership.

WW+P have closed our UK studios for the next few weeks and set up the technology to ensure business as usual and enable all our work to be carried out at home to help slow down the spread of Covid-19. We have ensured that all our teams have the technology to communicate and to be able to securely access the files which they need to work efficiently. It will be challenging but will teach us to work better. Having studios in different parts of the world we have studied how various countries have reacted. The crisis here has been handled in a very British way with politicians leaving it to business and individuals to decide how to act. Like many we have acted, not in the best interests of our business, but to protect those more vulnerable and help prevent a national health crisis.

There will be thousands of economic casualties. The fantastic restaurant Redemption closed its doors in Shoreditch on Monday saying they could not ride out what might be 12 weeks of trickle trade. It’s ironic that this great vegan restaurant should be one of the first casualties of the virus originating in a meat market 8,000 miles away. It’s hard to see how many cafes, bars and restaurants will survive the drop in trade.

Next Summer when we are playing softball in the late evening shadows of Regents Park we will reminisce with the same fond nostalgia as previous generations remember the blitz. But hopefully we will learn too. We will tackle public health and poverty issues. The next virus could be easier to transmit and more deadly. I can't believe that we need to be taught how and when to wash our hands. Surely all of us who travel on the tube have been doing that always?

And we may also decide to tackle the climate change emergency with the same resolution. The two issues are interconnected as most things on our small planet seem to be. The destruction of natural habitats is giving rise to these kind of outbreaks as this informative article discusses https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/mar

We should acknowledge that the younger generation are sacrificing their freedom in their social lives to protect the elderly and vulnerable in order to flatten the curve of necessary medical care. We need to repay this with concerted action on climate change to protect and enhance their future.

There will be good which comes out of this crisis. We might travel less as we will have tested and utilised virtual communication. We will have better social cohesion in our communities. We will come back fitter, stronger and better.
