Recently, my Sounds in the City McGill colleague Daniel Steele and I were at SidLee Architecture to discuss the advantages of bringing sound into the conversation when we design public spaces and places. Sound is sometimes an afterthought in architecture, design and planning, and we illustrated the advantages of thinking more proactively about how things will sound in addition to how they will look and feel. We are multi-sensorial creatures, so it surely makes sense to keep all of the senses in mind as we conceptualize and design urban environments. Thanks to Jason goorts and SidLee Architecture for making this possible. It was fun!
