Urban Spaces

Often when squares, promenades or parks are not popular with people and stay empty, it is because of their acoustics. Not only noise or an annoying hum, but in many cases less obvious acoustic properties can make spaces unpleasant or difficult to use.

Taking the ways into account in which the shapes and forms of urban spaces and their acoustic character are connected opens up new possibilities for creating attractive, safe places fit for diverse kinds of use, at no additional costs. Existing environments can be "tuned" through individual interventions and transformed into places people enjoy using.
