Sound in Urban Planning

Sound in Urban Planning
Join industry colleagues and researchers and discuss how we better integrate expert knowledge on sound in urban planning and design practice.
The quality of the urban sound environment, as well as indoor building acoustics, are essential for healthier and more livable urban environments – although the subject is often forgotten or downgraded. How do we strengthen the interdisciplinary collaboration between acousticians and urban planners, architects and other partners that are traditionally outside the sound industry? How do we as humans perceive sound and noise? And how do we overcome the dilemmas occurring when sustainable solutions might require further acoustical damping and thus are less cost efficient?

This afternoon, we are setting the scene for field experts, researchers, entrepreneurs, acousticians, urban planners, architects, sustainability experts, and other relevant profiles to mutually inspire each other and discuss the cross-disciplinary work needed for better acoustic conditions in future buildings and urban environments.
