Victoria Henshaw on Smell and the City


On Monday, September 24th 2012, Studio-X NYC hosted Dr. Victoria Henshaw for a presentation on her research and a conversation about smell and the city, with a particular focus on New York’s olfactory highs and lows. Henshaw is a researcher in architecture and urbanism at the University of Manchester, England. Her work on smell and the city examines the role of smell in urban experience, perception and design. In addition to exploring urban smellscapes and investigating the relationship between smell and sense of place, Henshaw’s research is also firmly tied to practical application and she will discuss her work developing tools for architects and urban planners that will help cities harness the possibilities of an intentional olfactory architecture.

This event is co-presented by Studio-X NYC and its pop-up project, Venue, a partnership with the Nevada Museum of Art’s Center for Art + Environment, which is traveling around North America through September 30, 2013.
