  4. Urban Smellscapes

    Olfactory Architectures

    Smell is a sense most architects have engaged with at some point in their work: whether designing a house, a residential care home or the industrial kitchen for a commercial restaurant, the ventilation of rooms and removal of strong and potentially unpleasant odours is a well-rehearsed practice. Yet in addition to the annoying smells, olfaction also offers many opportunities that have traditionally been overlooked, and it’s not just in architecture but right across the built environment professions.
