Abstract
This  project explores the role and significance of music in relation to the physical regeneration and marketing of Lisbon's Mouraria quarter.  I am interested in analyzing how an intervention on the sonic environment can instigate profound changes in the meanings, functions and experiences of urban space. Conversely, I am also looking at how the reshaping of the milieu of sound can be a powerful tool in transforming the urban dynamics of the place.
