‘Urban Sensorium’ explores the future of the built environment in cities through the lens of sensory experience. Using sight, smell, touch, sound, and taste, the project anticipated potential energy, ecology, climate, transit, and food scenarios for five major cities chosen for their projected economic growth and international influence. The methodology for the project included fieldwork and the gathering of indicators from current design and planning projects to identify major drivers of change within each city. We found New York might get brighter, Houston might become more fragrant, San Francisco may be drier, Los Angeles might get quieter, and Shanghai might be spicier, the implications of which were drawn citywide in a type of “future mapping.”
The project was researched and designed by Emily Schlickman and Anya Domlesky of XL Lab and supported by SWA Group and Noah Christman, SPUR Public Programming Manager. Graphic design of the exhibition by Paul Wehby.
