Description

The issue of sound quality has been studied in architecture for centuries. Formal qualities of concert halls are especially known for their advancements in acoustical technologies. Through comparative studies of historical concert halls and studies of form, the research was shaped into graphic diagrams explicating relevant formal and technical information. The study of spatial voids revealed information about the architects design strategies. The research suggested that the most important factor towards this is the formal structure which often relied on materials and secondary solutions. We wanted to relate the study to the human scale; in particular, the consideration of the “Human Conversation.” How can we create architecture that allows and celebrates concept?
