Acoustic Ecology



How can we transform POLLUTION into a CELEBRATION? Welcome to Acoustic Ecology:

Our project reacts to the fact that throughout the years cities have been designed taking sound as a negative environmental factor. On the other hand we use sound as a parameter of design we experiment with different morphological urban patterns in Santa Coloma that are interactive to real time data.

Each component in our landscape has a specific function according to the zoning, using sound as an ABSORBER, DEFLECTOR, and RECORDER which react to sound and blends with landscape in between this post-industrial neighborhood. This representation gives an overall understanding of how the acoustic ecology hacks the industrial area with the different zones of intervention according through the zoning and sound mapping. As a result the landscape is piercing through the industrial area, at the same time that acts like a connector.

From now onwards we insist this invisible layer will also be a priority before designing a city.  Its effects are as not invisible as its nature itself, but everyday there will be new sounds  that will create new adaptive and interactive structures.
