Abstract (1) Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many aspects of the society including the built environment. This study examined architectural and urban design concepts coping with the pandemic, using the data collected from architectural and urban design competitions held in South Korea in 2020. (2) Methods: We selected 102 submissions from 5 design competitions as the study sample. All submissions were annotated and labeled with design concept keywords. We used Semantic Network analysis and Latent Dirichlet Allocation Topic Modeling analysis. (3) Results: The most frequent design concepts include green infrastructure (GI), space flexibility (SF), elevated circulation system (EC), and social density control (SD). Of the concepts, GI and SD had high centrality values within the semantic network of the concept keywords. The LDA topic modeling shows that the topic involving SD, common space, GI, temporary buildings, mobility hubs was common among the study the sample.
