In the aftermath of the COVID-19 epidemic, most countries responded to the spread of the epidemic by adopting a closed management approach, with changes in living spaces being the most discussed in the field of architecture. This paper briefly organizes the research related to the spatial changes of buildings after COVID-19, and presents people’s needs for buildings in the post-COVID-19 period. The method used in our study is known as a qualitative analysis approach, mainly through the collation and analysis of the literature following the epidemic. In summing up, it may be concluded in three aspects: firstly, there is a clear increase in the demand for quality in the built space, especially in the physical environment (landscape, lighting, ventilation); secondly, there is an increase in the demand for flexibility in space, both from architects and users, who want to meet the demand for the use of space by flexibly transforming its function or flexibly dividing it, i.e., flexible space; and thirdly, although changes in space can be an effective response to epidemics, changes are not necessary.
