Soundwalk

Greetings Urbsters,

We had a great Soundwalk. Special thanks to Jorma and Leona for guiding us on the tour and to the Geography Department, some of whom joined us for the event.

Just some of those who attended.

It was a fascinating talk where we looked at how some spaces can encourage or discouraged users through sound. We also looked at how silence can be calming or ‘deafening’ based on how the space was constructed.

The fans really discouraged people from staying underground.

Seal !!!

Overall, we had a great time hearing parts of the city we do not normally hear, and gaining a new perspective of how a city influences its residents. Thanks to everyone who turned out and do not worry, we will be having more events again soon.
