The Bartlett


Pret A Manger, Euston Station, London NW1 2DY

Every day we experience hundreds of smells. A smellwalk is an exploration of the olfactory environment (the ‘smellscape’); a tour where your nose gets priority. It is also an opportunity to get to know the city in a different and very personal way.

Walking provides a novel perspective on issues, themes and artefacts within the built environment. Bartlett Walks is a series of PhD student led excursions around different corners of London. Covering diverse themes including smell, water and memory, the walks all assume different methodological or thematic approaches to the built environment.

These walks are open to Bartlett postgraduate students.

This event will focus on the smellscape around Euston station/UCL campus. In pairs, participants will be invited to become aware of smells on a guided route, considering their sources, intensity, notes and comparing personal responses.

We'll end our walk in a local coffee shop, where there'll be opportunity to warm up and chat about the experience.

This walk will be led by Cecilia Bembibre, UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage.
