"Dynamics in post-pandemic architecture" refers to dynamics in architecture as implication of disease spread in a building for averting a future pandemic. The highly contagious and rapid spread of COVID-19 has caused changes in the architecture and way of life. The built environment needs proper strategies to act as a facilitator for averting the spread of disease in the future. The implications of disease spread and strategies for dynamics in post-pandemic architecture will be reviewed and discussed in this study. Integrative literature review used in this article is a systematic method to define previous research, relate concepts and relevant studies by reanalyses the data for future research. The first step is systematically clear selection; the second step is coding; the third step is synthesis. The integrative review considered 102 papers (of which 40 were reviewed). It was discovered that there were no articles that incorporated previous study findings comprehensively. Six strategies for future dynamics in architecture post-pandemic are revealed: control of architectural density, control of peripheries and spread, control of interaction, control of mobility, control of access, and new protocols and standards for spatial. Each strategy demonstrated the interaction between dynamics in post-pandemic architecture and security-pandemic variables in built environment. The findings: identification of the dynamics in architecture post-pandemic strategies that affect the built environment in preventing disease spread in the future. This will support future research in defining appropriate future research designs and understanding the need for holistic analysis of the integrated effects of diverse dynamics in post-pandemic architecture.
