SOUND LABYRINTH


A space designed exclusively for its acoustic features, in terms of sound reflection and sound propagation through space.

SOUND LABYRINTH


A space designed exclusively for its acoustic features, in terms of sound reflection and sound propagation through space.
The approach, is to make people aware of the importance of the role that architecture have in our aural perception of spaces, and thus of how surfaces reflect and modulate sounds that we hear everyday, re-shaping the sonic environment in which we inhabit.

The labyrinth is designed to stress the reflective features of architecture. It is composed by a sequence of concave and convex walls, that act as acoustic mirrors. If placed in an urban environment, the project acts as an acoustic barrier, visitors can enter and experience the sound mutations, like entering inside a complex musical instrument.

As we live in noisy environments, we rarely have a place to experience sounds in their full, majestic power.
Through this research we explore a process, a methodology and a possible approach to use sound as an architectural element. The notion of soundscape, and the integration of architecture inside an acoustic environment has helped to understand the complexity of dealing with fixed geometries inside an unfixed and constantly mutating sonic environment. Extensive sound analysis, like Isobel maps, and rhythmical maps could be introduced in the process, as a starting point for the future of architectural intervention.
