Architecture & Music / Dynamic Acoustics

Architecture & Music
Architecture & Music

The term "Dynamic Acoustics" describes the idea, the ability to change the acoustic principles of a given room through a modular ceiling. Using the principle of "inversion" a system of modules hanging from the ceiling offers the possibility to change the acoustic functions of reflection, absorption and diffusion.
This allows Architecture to transform to a music instrument. Through a transformable structure the audible perception can change live, contemporary Concert Halls can now provide new ways of expression and multifunctionality.
The system is suitable for concert and multifunctional halls as well as for recording studios.
