Attention switches in real-world urban environment: Engaging with the city perceptually. Speakers: Nikita A. Kharlamov, Assistant Professor, Niels Bohr Centre for Cultural Psychology; Aleksandra Kaszowska, Pre-Doctoral Fellow, Niels Bohr Centre for Cultural Psychology. Abstract: It is well known in psychology that salient, memorable places serve as landmarks in wayfinding and formation of spatial knowledge. However, their aesthetic role as attention attractors and their meaningful texturing is underexplored. We would like to discuss some of our methodological ideas on how to track the relationship between place, attention, and meaning. In particular, we will briefly describe our past projects involving mobile methods (go-along-talk-aloud protocol), and the challenges we ran into, and we would appreciate feedback on how the psychological ideas of ‘salient
place’ and ‘attention switch’ could be integrated with planning and design practices.
