Abstract
This research questions the importance of sound in relation to our city experiences. By means of analysing the characteristics of a soundscape in the city of Antwerp this study identifies Antwerp's genius loci. Moreover it is stated that soundscape, cultural heritage and public spaces amplify each other. Design concepts and strategic design methods can adopt soundscape in historical urban spaces in order to increase the quality of life. It is recommended that architects and urban planners interpret the aural score of the built environment in order to compose significant sustainable urban cities. (C) 2015 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
