Urban spatial soundscapes of Paris, New York and Tokyo with extended interview with Senior Research Fellow in Architecture at the Royal College of Art, Prof. Adam Kassa who gives his insight on the sound of cities and the Strand based on critical and urban theories that consider public space.
Urban critical theory is a branch of critical theory that focuses on the study of cities and urban environments. It examines the social, political, and economic factors that shape urban spaces, as well as the ways in which these spaces impact the lives of the people who live in them. Urban critical theory is concerned with issues such as gentrification, inequality, and the role of cities in the global economy. It is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing on fields such as sociology, geography, architecture, and urban planning. Urban critical theory is often used to inform urban policy and planning decisions, with the aim of creating more equitable and sustainable urban environments.
