Oslo Research Visit

The LxDII team recently visited Oslo to speak with project partner Trond Maag who works with Urbanidentity, a collaborative research group that emphasizes listening, in particular when performed during soundwalks, as vital to planning and designing the everyday city. We discussed the complexities of noise, architectural interventions and the method of soundwalking as an experiential and communicative practice of awareness raising. Our post doc researcher Mark Wright also participated in a day of soundwalking, led by Trond, as part of the 25th Oslo European Green Capital 2019 project.
