Manual of Physical Distancing by LTL Architects

The Manual of Physical Distancing was first presented to the public in May 2020 as a consolidated effort by LTL Architects — founded by David Lewis, Paul Lewis, and Marc Tsurumaki — and Guy Nordenson & Associates to support the scientific research on Covid-19 by using the visual practices of architecture and urban analysis.

From interiors to urban space, the Manual explored the implications of historical pandemics on cities and architecture, and took New York as a case study on how cities might utilize temporary adjustments to collective urban protocols introduced by the pandemic, and transform them into longer-term strategies.
