Designing spaces that re-manufacture existing sounds, promotes a logic of creating differentiated

Investigations evaluate acoustical performances and their provoked engagement between the
micro and macro. By suggesting methods of developing micro-climates that affect both the
material and immaterial relevancies of the design, space becomes a qualitative sound effect.

As low embodied energy material, felt is able to synthesize a polyvalent material performance
by hybridizing soft and absorptive properties with composite hard-shell structures. The resultant
integration into a spatial apparatus is then able to spatially re-negotiate the environmental
conditions, further altering the sound.

The synthesized acoustic tests, both material and generative, challenge the idea of the
architectural product being something that is a one off moment and projecting an aspect that is
able to be continually re-produced.

Engaging the acoustical disturbances of prototypical infrastructures as hosts promotes
opportunities for re-territorialization.

Temporal noise establishes the criteria through which the latent concept seeks to reprocess into a
qualitative product.

Our proposal seeks to digest the external and re-manufacture within the architectural context a
set of residuals.
