the haptic city

The Haptic City is an investigation into interrelations between the body’s senses and their urban surroundings. Connections and interrelationships, starting at the scale of the hands and feet, inform degrees of engagement and usefulness between the city and its inhabitants. What are some design considerations for the day-to-day lived and sensed experiences of a pedestrian in the city? This is part of a broader discussion on the relationship between humanity and built form, environmental conditions, and collective consciousnesses.
