Principal Investigator: Gascia Ouzounian

Research Fellows: Ruth Bernatek, Matilde Meireles, Christabel Stirling

Research project, University of Oxford

Funded by the European Research Council (ERC)


Sonorous Cities: Towards a Sonic Urbanism is a research project formed at the intersection of sound, urbanism, and critical spatial practices. The aim is to better understand cities and urban life through a critical investigation of the sonic conditions of cities, and of people’s experiences of urban sound environments; to make critical and creative interventions into urban sound environments; and to support architects, designers, and spatial practitioners in embracing sonic modes of urban analysis and design.
