AbstractThe Covid-19 pandemic is a cusp, a critical juncture which has brought into the foreground the inadequacies of our present development agendas, spatial practices and their manifestations. It is here and now that we, as professionals, need to question our roles and activities, moving forward to take ownership of our own practice, take cognisance of this call for change and reorient our philosophies, our strategies and our work to a more grounded, passionate and humane approach. Based on research into pre-industrial spatial practices and experiences of several of our projects, we seek a new paradigm - one that we call “Responsible Design Practice”.
