dc.description.abstract Dwellings in congested urban areas are confronted with both invigorating and aggravating penetrations of proximic sound and street activity within constricted environments. Typically the physicality of a building is there to serve as SHELTER from weather, intruders, and to create an interior effect. Here building elements, both physical and electronic, are considered to serve as MODULATORS of environmental infiltration. If the DWELLING is a holistic physiological system then it should be an extension of our physiological being and an extension of the urban landscape. Attunement of infiltrating SOUND and VISION (or MOTION) for dwellings in urban areas can provide for more appropriate environments. Contextual sound and motion can be managed into useful energies in urban habitats to provoke different sensory terrains.
