The urban landscape produces feelings of anxiety, fear, pleasure, and excitement. Join Kaja Kühl, founder and principal of youarethecity, as she brings together psychologists and urban design experts to create interventions that alter our urban sensory experience. How do scent, sound, taste, sight, and touch influence our feelings of comfort or discomfort in public space? How do we design for a happier experience of space? Participants will create temporary installations to alter the experience of the sites surrounding the Lab.
