www.ljudplanering.se (sound planning) is a gathering place for many aspects of sound design and sound in the city – a live forum (in Swedish – at least so far) that is continuously updated with new experiences and knowledge. Here you can listen to city sounds, and compare the various solutions in the design affects the sound.
How do different water fountains and installations sound? How do the masking by traffic noise, absorption and reflection function? What are successful examples of site-specific sound art and how it can be used in urban planning? What happens in the world of research?
Moreover, here you can find many good links, advice on literature, download a bulletin etc.
www.ljudplanering.se has been developed in collaboration between Movium (Centre for the Urban Public Space at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) (about Movium in English) and Gunnar Cerwén, (landscape architect).
