ABSTRACT Sound has been relatively underrepresented in urban design considerations, especially the positive aspects of sound. Yet, a vast body of academic literature on urban soundscape could inform professionals. We report on workshops with iterative improvements, designed to bring soundscape research to practice. The two workshops were conducted as part of the Sounds in the City partnership, in collaboration with the City of Montreal. Different workshop formats are compared, and recommendations are furnished both in terms of promoting awareness of the role of urban sound and with the intent of informing similar knowledge mobilization activities for researchers in related environmental fields.
