Caroline Claus is a Brussels-based urban (sound) researcher. Her work concentrates on the position of noise and vibration in a context of urban development. The ontological turn in sound studies, feminist theory and the avant-garde output of independent electronic record labels provide a conceptual and methodological basis for an a-disciplinary research on sonic urbanism as speculative practice. Caroline has contributed to the design of urban railway space and transitory and participatory processes. She has long term experience in supporting organizations in the social sphere in their organization of outreach-based community involvement in Brussels urban development processes. Her second book, a collaboration with Q-O2, was published in november 2018. Caroline studied Sociology, and Urbanism and Spatial Planning (cum laude) and is currently doing a Ph.D. at the KU Leuven Department of Architecture. She teaches with Prof. Dr. Arch. Burak Pak the maib14 Design Studio Studio_L28 at the Faculty of Architecture, Brussels.
