Abstract

The interaction between the health emergency and the available technology is producing an extraordinary metamorphosis of social and economic customs. Technology and the pandemic conspire together against the city, understood as a "container and content", compromising its economic value and undermining its cultural role.This energy has released an intense centrifugal force that has displaced activities and people quickly and radically, with strong consequences on the structure of cities. Suddenly citizens are exposed to centrifugal force that projects them away from each other: the worker from the workplace, the student from the school, the researcher from the university, the customer from the store. In this sense, the presentation talks about "reverse urbanization", which has given rise to a process of decongestion of cities that, indirectly, will have repercussions on the development strategy of internal or isolated areas. The risk of displacement is high. Distributing resources concentrated in the city center throughout the community will change the socio-economic structure. Highly anthropized environments are great catalysts for human, financial and cultural resources, policies that take time to be reconverted.
