Book 2: The sensory landscape of cities

This is the second in a series of short publications, which seek to briefly encapsulate key agendas and thought movements that shape cities today and will have an impact on their future. The city is a communications device. It speaks to us through every fibre of its being. The lived urban experience comes from a circular sensory cycle. The Sensory Landscape of Cities, sees the city as a 360-degree, enveloping, immersive experience, which has emotional and psychological impacts. It argues that we sense, feel and understand it through increasingly narrow funnels of perception.
