Jess Myers: Adventures in Audiosocial Space

Jess Myers
Urbanist and assistant professor of architecture at Syracuse University

Adventures in Audiosocial Space

Jess Myers argues for sound studies as a critical framework for architectural analysis. This lecture unpacks architecture’s exclusive relationship with visual communication and seeks instead to connect the collective decision making that constitutes listening with dynamics of power in shared and personal space. In this lecture, Myers makes the case for architects’ ears; how they can be attuned to the soundscapes architecture helps to enforce and make different collective decisions about the removal and discipline of sound.
