Obtaining a good acoustic quality in urban areas is a major environmental task within the European Union that goes far beyond noise control – a task that requires a comprehensive view on the future development of cities including their transport and industrial infrastructure.
The aim of Urban SOUND Planning is to achieve the best possible solution when designing an acoustically favorable environment. To cope with the complexity of this task, the consequent application of a transdisciplinary approach is needed: urban and traffic planning, architectural aspects, noise control and soundscaping as well as political and administrative processes and economic aspects must be considered early in the planning stages.
With Urban SOUND Planning, a new stage in designing healthy urban environments can be achieved, when sound planning is considered as an integral, indispensable part of urban planning and design – and when it is included as early as possible in the planning process.
The international symposium Urban SOUND Planning for city representatives, planners and all stakeholders involved in urban planning will present new tools developed within the EU-funded SONORUS project to actively design livable cities, as well as their practical application to specific test cases provided by the project’s city partners Gothenburg, Antwerp, Brighton, and Rome.
