Experiential Walks for Urban Design

Abstract The chapter introduces the concept of the experiential walk addressed by the book and presents the logic and structure that guided the collection of contributions, i.e. the three thematic focuses organising the parts, namely: “Experiential Walk for Revealing the Sensory Dimensions of Public Spaces”, “Experiential Walk for Representing and Communicating the Urban Experience”, and “Experiential Walk for Informing Urban Design and Favoring Citizens’ Engagement”. By doing this, it provides an overview of the different approaches by the authors that collectively make it possible to frame an interdisciplinary perspective of in-motion sensory investigation of the urban environment. The parts discusses the reasons that led to this collective book and explains the criteria behind its structure in chapter.

The idea of this book came about within the “Translating Ambiance” GDRI (CNRS International Research Group) international project (2014/2017).1 The GDRI is part of the larger framework of the International Ambiances Network which fosters the investigation of the sensory perspective of architectural and urban ambiances at the international level.

This sensory approach brings into play sound, light, smell, temperature, touch, and kinesthesia, among others. A network of this sort naturally demands multi-sensory and pluri- and interdisciplinary methods and skills ranging from research to applied design, teaching, practice, and artistic action.

The GDRI project consolidated the ambiances network’s theoretical, conceptual, instrumental, and operational basis by an interdisciplinary process aiming at collaborative exploration of ambiance issues from different perspectives. This process becomes a tool for translating ambiances into an interdisciplinary and shareable way.
