Curated by Inès Péborde for the project Healing Places, the soundwalk is designed for the professional audience of architects, urban planners and designers. The intention is to guide the participants to listen consciously to their environment.
Gradually leading the attention and contemplation of the listeners from physical to aural architecture, the soundwalk explores how the materiality of sound affects our connection and awareness of space.
Healing Places is a practice-based research on therapeutic and sensory urbanism that brings architecture and urban design together with medical science, art and technology. The project creates a transdisciplinary dialogue that connects users, architects, neuroscientists, psychologists, artists, tech-developers etc.
The project investigates ways to create innovative and interactive urban environments whose characteristics could improve user's physiological and psychological capabilities.
