Experimenting with Sound, Investigating Architectural Space
Why the talk is inspiring?
Everyday architectural and urban spaces are filled with sounds, but sonic qualities are seldom incorporated into architecture. Awareness of sounds can give new understanding of architecture and lead to other modes of teaching and making. The lecture presents explorative and pedagogical works by Urban Sound Institute, an artistic research group with composers, acousticians and architects.
