DESIGNING WITH URBAN SOUND (last edited: 2019)

About this exposition

The Licentiate thesis D E S I G N I N G W I T H U R B A N S O U N D - Exploring methods for qualitative sound analysis of the built environment, examines the constitution and qualitative characteristics of urban sonic space from a design-oriented and practice-based perspective. The act of lifting forth and illuminating the interaction between architecture, the creation of sound and a sonic experience aims to examine and develop useful tools and methods for the representation, communication and analysis of the exterior sonic environment in complex architectural spaces. The objective is to generate theoretical and practical knowledge within the field of urban sound planning and design by showing examples of different and complementary ways of communicating and analyzing sound than those which are commonly recognized. Sound in the city is an intricate phenomenon that affects us at several levels, both health-wise and socially. At the same time, sound has cultural and functional implications by mediating important information connected to identity, security and spatial orientation. Unfortunately, current quantitative methods are not sufficient for describing, analyzing and managing urban sounds in regard to this complexity. Complementary methods of representation and analysis need to be developed that will bring out important information - gathering it and making it visual - about the constitution, character and quality of urban sonic space that is possible to utilize alongside today’s calculation and measurement-based methods within such areas as architecture and urban planning practices. The licentiate thesis has its foundation in the analogue and well-recognized tool-box of the architect, such as various forms of documentation and sketching techniques, mapping, inventory and site-analysis, etc., when exploring tools and strategies for the communication and analysis of the exterior urban sound environment along the long and busy street Hornsgatan in Stockholm. In addition to exploring various methods for capturing and describing the qualitative constitution of the exterior sonic environment and some of the basic factors affecting it, this thesis sets forth a general model for qualitative sound analysis of a problematic, yet well-utilized, urban sonic space. The licentiate thesis exists as both a print and a digital version that complement each other and thus should be read, listened to and scrutinized in parallel.
