The Sound of Architecture

Time: 03:15 - 04:30 pm, Thursday 29th September

Location: Singapore Theatre B120 - Glyn Davis Building (MSD), University of Melbourne

Steen Eiler Rasmussen asks: “Can Architecture be heard? Most people would say as architecture does not produce sound; it cannot be heard. But neither does it radiate light and yet it can be seen. We see the light it reflects and thereby gain an impression of form and material. In the same way, we hear the sounds it reflects and they, too, give us an impression of form and material.”

This session investigates the interrelationships between architecture, sound design and music. It aims to open a debate on the integration between architecture and engineering and the use of modelling and numerical simulation tools for the design of acoustic spaces.
