Abstract

Odor, as a type of non-visual perception, has received relatively little attention. However, with the exacerbation of urbanization and environmental pollution, people have become more concerned about the odors in urban air. This study aims to explore the relationship between odors and cities, and to demonstrate how odors and locations are linked through design. We hope to contribute positively to urban development by visualizing odors in a form of olfactory landscape, focusing on the Shichahai area in Beijing. Odor-related data were collected through olfactory walks, and then visualized through odor maps, to gain insights into the distribution and characteristics of odors in urban landscapes. This approach can provide comprehensive information for urban planning, ensuring the livability of urban spaces and the quality of life of residents.
