CONCEPT

Inspired by the loudspeakers on top of Minarets and the huge banks of speakers at rock concerts, the piece lends spatial and aesthetic character to devices that are typically seen as undesirable but necessary hardware. Parametric and digital fabrication tools allow the form to be acoustically responsive while mediating the scale of the human body and that of the architectural surface.
