|A Study on Architectural Approaches Corresponding to the Post-COVID Era
|Post-COVID; Infectious Disease; Environmental Design; Prevention of Infectious Disease Through Environmental Design
|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.
