“Invisible Places” is a conference dedicated to sound, urbanism and the sense of place, taking place soon, between July 18th and 20th, 2014, in Viseu, Portugal.
There is an artistic part of the event too, aiming at “transforming Viseu into an acoustically conscious city”, as the curator Raquel Castro explained.
Within the tripartite structure of “Invisible Places”, uniting science, architecture / urbanism and art in public space, I am particularly interested in two of its streams: Architecture and urban planning and Urban sounds, identity and sense of place. And of course in getting to know the city of Viseu, which is an additional benefit of attending the conference.
