Cláudia Martinho is a practice-based researcher, architect (FAUP), PhD Sonic Arts (Goldsmiths, University of London) and MSc Architectural and Urban Acoustics (Sorbonne Université, FR). Her work embraces architecture, sound art, ecoacoustics, activism. She experiments with environmental sound through a spatial approach, into the architectural design of ambiances, to engage interspecies encounters. Her practice involves field recording, soundscape design, installation, performance, workshops.

Symbiosis and Geometries


Interspecies communicative ecologies
Interspecies communicative ecologies to foster new alliances between human-made architecture and the natural environment.

Type of project
  • Next alliances

The experiment advances ways to co-create architecture in alliance and cooperation with ecosystems, communities, materialities, through sound, acoustics and geometry. In bioacoustics, sensors are used to investigate how plants communicate and interact differently with environmental conditions and organisms, emitting signals at frequencies beyond the human perceptual spectrum. This project enables an experience of interaction with vegetal life through plants connected to sensors. The vibratory signals emitted by plants are transduced in real time as a soundscape. It is spatialised in resonance with architecture to tune into an environment that favours active and immersive listening. This approach sensitises our human ears to vegetal voices as a way of reconfiguring our relationship with plant life through the language of sound and vibration. This encounter calls for the importance of valuing our conscious communication with the variations and rhythms of the primary sensory environment.
