Caroline Claus is a Brussels-based socio-spatial planner and urban sound researcher. Her work focuses on the sonic and affective dimensions of transformational urban regeneration processes. Through field-based studies in sonic cartography, she explores how an affective reorientation in planning and design research can contribute to the construction of sonic (infra)structures moving beyond human experience and visual appeal. Caroline has contributed to the planning and design of transitory urban railway spaces in Brussels. She has long term experience in supporting organizations in the social sphere in their organization of outreach-based community involvement in Brussels urban regeneration processes. Caroline studied Sociology (Ugent), and Urbanism, Spatial Planning & Design (EhB & VUB ∣ Cum Laude). She holds a PhD in Architecture from KU Leuven.
