Alexandra Gomes, a Research Officer at LSE Cities, has contributed a chapter to Senses in Cities: Experiences of Urban Settingsa Routledge publication. Urban landscapes are usually thought of as engineered formations designed for functionality, however, the book explores how sights and sounds impact on our sense of quality of place. Gomes’ chapter, “A Framework of Analysis for Urban Sensory Aesthetics: Looking at Sensescapes as ‘Brush Strokes’ of an Urban Canvas” provides insight into how public spaces are perceived through touch, sight and smell.
