Early May 2020, Fenne Pinkster and I walk around Watergraafsmeer in Amsterdam East. Through Fenne’s eyes we see what she calls ‘everyday observations’ that inform us about how the city works and how people interact with each other – also in times of corona. What has changed when we look back one year later?
In the Anderhalf NAP podcast Sjoerd ter Borg interviews urban scholars about the structural effects that corona has on the city. Each episode consists of two talks with the same researcher with an interval of almost a year. Have their ideas on the consequences of the pandemic for the Amsterdam city life changed in one year’s time?
