Urban Sensorium explores the future of cities through the lens of sensory experience. Using sight, smell, touch, sound, and taste, the project anticipates potential energy, ecology, climate, transit, and food scenarios for five major cities. Chosen for their projected growth and international influence, the featured cities include two global giants (New York and Los Angeles), two knowledge capitals (San Francisco and Houston), and an Asian anchor (Shanghai). The methodology for the project included “future mapping” and fieldwork to gain insight into possible futures for these five cities where we work, live, and design.

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.
