Looking to precedents such as OMA’s Casa da Musica, our group set out to change sound through surface made with Rhino scripting. Using the Knowlton School of Architecture’s main space, a typically sound-rich space, we experimented with creating a new material to manipulate noise. Voids in the material created at the intersection of a gradient allows sound movement. A solid (sound proofing) happens at structural support points to create a free-standing surface. The final surface form would be milled and cast together with a rubberized plastic resin and arranged in a repeated pattern.
