Urban Sonic Networking: Urban Design through Acoustic Sensory Manipulation
Supervisors: George Jeronimidis, Michael Weinstock
The aim of the research is to design a network of urban spaces through acoustical design manipulation methods, in lieu of the traditional visual approach to urban design. The acoustical urban network design will also address the manipulation of other senses. The initial experimental work has addressed the problem of defining the scale of the research and its temporal dimensions.
