Sound and Surface: Select acoustic experiments by Brady Peters

Fri, Nov 22/19 – 6:00pm to Fri, Jan 10/20 – 9:00pm

Larry Wayne Richards Gallery

Architecture is an instrument, and through the manipulation of geometry and surface, architects create spatial and experiential sonic effects. While the consideration of sound gives opportunity for invention, architects currently lack the explorative and representational techniques necessary to design acoustic architecture and experience. Dr. Brady Peters develops new methods for the exploration of innovative acoustically-informed architectures, and the surfaces and structures shown in this exhibition were developed using advanced computational simulation, geometric generation, and robotic fabrication techniques. While challenges remain, this research points to a future where buildings sound better, and architects can easily and intuitively design for sound.
