This book examines the impact of the recent global health crisis on the urban development of Vienna and Tokyo. Contributions from fields such as regional, landscape, or transport planning as well as urban sociology and cultural anthropology illustrate that, in these capitals, the effects of the pandemic on urban space have been both immediate and long-term. At the same time, they show that historical and cultural contexts influence the way cities have dealt with the challenges posed by COVID-19.
