Transportation infrastructure serves as a vital component essential for the efficient functioning of any city. Originally, the design of transportation arterial systems aimed to improve communication and facilitate movement between different regions. Whether catering to passenger or freight transportation, these arterial routes were designed to efficiently transport large volumes of people and goods, utilizing the rapid movement of vehicles within designated spatial corridors. Undoubtedly, transportation plays a significant role in promoting the physical and economic growth of cities. However, it is crucial to recognize that this very infrastructure can also lead to the fragmentation and isolation of communities situated along these arterials. Consequently, this fragmentation diminishes the vibrancy and vitality of the spaces along these routes, creating an imbalance in community development. Exploring effective strategies to reconnect fragmented community spaces and revitalize the surrounding land emerges as a topic of utmost importance, demanding comprehensive study. In my view, the task of reconnecting disconnected community spaces and making effective use of linear spaces requires innovative interventions. I perceive sound as an invisible energy that holds the potential to revitalize spatially inactive community areas. By harnessing the power of sound, we can breathe new life into these spaces and enhance their overall vibrancy.
