A well-designed place doesn't just look good—it also feels good, sounds good, and smells good. In fact, good multi-sensory places attract visitors, makes them happy, and instill in them a sense of ownership and care for that place. Yet we often prioritize vision over the other senses. To get out of the habit of privileging vision, to understand the importance of multi-sensory design, and to learn how to experience the city through your non-visual senses, come on a blindfolded exploration of Toronto. We'll meet at the starting point and chat about safety and what to expect for about five minutes. Then you'll don your blindfold and the walking will begin. You will hold onto a thin string as I guide you through a range of multi-sensory urban environments. After 50 minutes or so, you will remove the blindfold and we'll retrace our steps—about a 15-minute walk—while sharing insights from the experience. After booking this tour, you can choose the start time. *Note that the tour may take less time if you are a quick walker.
I am interested in multi-sensory design. I hold a master's degree in philosophy from University of Toronto. I think a lot about how places and objects can be better designed if they accommodate our senses. I have been leading blindfolded tours of Toronto for three years. My tour was featured at the Toronto Offsite Design Festival (2016, 2017) where they were acclaimed by the Globe and Mail, CBC, Now Toronto, BlogTO, Toronto Sun, and chosen as "expert picks" by critics from Azure and the Globe and Mail.
