Acoustics, ETH Zürich, 2008
Elective Course
In this project we investigated adapting the foaming process for the design of active acoustic wall panels. The students engaged with the question of how diffuse reflecting acoustic panels affect the perception of space and the synaesthetic experience between hearing and seeing. Applying algorithmic design tools enabled the parameterised adaptation of the panels to a variety of different spatial and acoustic situations.
