The designed sonic world of the city
A guide to sustainable acoustic spatial planning.
Until just a few years ago, the acoustic urban space was completely neglected in terms of design. Although noise control measures are prescribed in accordance with technical noise measurements, they are not always sensible in terms of a balanced urban space, and often complicate construction considerably. The sustainable soundscape of our future cities is a complex system of physical building measures, traffic planning, individual needs of residents, and the resulting psychoacoustic adjustments of the environment. This master’s thesis intertwines the components of the system into a guide for those who want to build or authorize the city of the future.
This Master's Thesis was recognized internationally with several awards: ADC Junior Award 2019 Hamburg, Gold Award Student 3D Audio Competition Tonmeistertagung 2018 Köln, Honorable Mention for Excellence in Sound Art & Sound Design Klingt Gut Symposium 2018 Hamburg
