Norman Foster's predictions on how coronavirus could change cities feature in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter



The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features architect Norman Foster, who says the coronavirus pandemic will not fundamentally change cities.
In a speech to the United Nations Forum of Mayors in Geneva, Foster said that while Covid-19 will not have a long-term impact on cities it will accelerate current trends.
The founder of London-based studio Foster + Partners predicts these will include more sustainable buildings, a "renaissance" for urban farming and a "new future" for monorails.
Readers however aren't convinced with one commenting that "coronavirus already has changed cities". Another added "cities are used by people who work at desks in dedicated, expensive office buildings which are now half redundant". Ten tranquil bathrooms with dark and soothing interiors
Other stories in this week's newsletter include our roundup of 10 zen bathrooms that embrace dark, moody hues, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Álvaro Siza and Porto studio COR Arquitectos' design for a housing scheme in Italy and the Canine and Feline Hotel in Parada, Portugal.
