Sense The City
Project Description

The sensorial, emotional and atmospheric experiences of humans in cities and the importance of these for sustainable urban development are little researched and rarely considered as indicators in urban planning processes. In the SenseTheCity project, we are developing and testing a so-called ‘Resonance Kit’, asking how the sensorial, emotional and atmospheric qualities can be better acknowledged and documented, and recommendations for action derived from them.

Our project is transdisciplinary and we employ a variety of methods and tools (analogue and digital), in project locations in Berlin and Wuppertal in Germany. Our aim is to make the challenges and potentials of a sustainable city experienceable, and provide a sensorially extended and adapted basis for decision-making in urban and creative city developments.
