  1. 1. Designing with Urban Sound : Exploring methods for qualitative sound analysis of the built environment

    Author : Nina Hällgren; Katja Grillner; Björn Hellström; Gunnar Sandin; Konstfack; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Architecture; urban sound design; urban sound planning; soundscape; urban planning; artistic research; architectural research; Architectue;

    Abstract : The licentiate thesis Designing with Urban Sound explores the constitution and qualitative characteristics of urban sonic space from a design-oriented and practice-based perspective. The act of lifting forth and illuminating the interaction between architecture, the creation of sound and a sonic experience aims to examine and develop useful tools and methods for the representation, communication and analysis of the exterior sonic environment in complex architectural spaces.

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the role of interior design elements, especially artwork, in way-searchers’ wayfinding and orientation in hospital environments. The thesis considers the way-searcher’s background and the impact of cultural belonging, occupation, memories, aesthetic preferences, and language, and the influence that such factors might have on the perception of the hospital environment and its guiding elements.

    Abstract : The ocular-centric approach predominant in the field of design, particularly textile and spatial design, focuses on visual aesthetics and visually mediated interactions. Whereas the non-visual materialities of a space, such as smells, are ignored in the design process, meaning that interior spaces with homogenously odourless environments lack interactions with the olfactory.
