Abstract In this study, the 'prevention of infectious disease through environmental design' was proposed as an architectural approach in the respect of part-of-life disinfection to correspond to the post-COVID era, and its validity was verified. The infectious disease of COVID-19 was known to be mainly spread by close contact, airborne transmission, and contact with contaminated surfaces. To cope with them in the manner of architectural planning, the six principles of prevention of infectious disease through environmental design were proposed, which are 'physical distance securement', 'contact control', 'access control', 'anti-virus air handling', 'sharing minimization', and 'maintenance and management'. Lastly, the validity and effectiveness of the six principles were verified through AIA's architectural guidelines in response to COVID-19 and several architectural design approaches all over the world.
