This thesis by Jonathan Michael Broyles, performs an investigation of structural and acoustic behavior for shaped concrete slabs with curved, non-standard geometry. Nine unique geometric variables were used to define and shape concrete slabs.
This paper positions the development and performance of a responsive acoustic envelope system, called Resonant Chamber, within discourses in ecology, systems theory and cybernetics.
This thesis by Christopher W. Norton examines the potential for parametric design software to create performance based design using acoustic metrics as the design criteria.
The aim of this research is to present a prototype of an adaptive structure, with an acoustic application, to control sound quality and perception in spaces where this has a central role, such as theatres or concert halls.
Designed by Austrian design firm 13&9 Design, BuzziPleat is the latest sound absorbing option added to the BuzziSpace catalog of smart, modern acoustic solutions. The lightweight, large-scale forms are sculptural in nature.
Scale turns the acoustic wall panel on its ear. Designed as a university project by Vanessa Busemann and Felix Zebi with German design collective, Cabs Design, this modular wall system is made from cut and folded acoustic fiber composite.
The paper by Maximilian Vomhof, Lauren Vasey, Fabio Gramazio, Matthias Kohler, Stefan Bräuer, Kurt Eggenschwiler and Jürgen Strauss presents research on a robotically fabricated acoustic wall system, “Acoustic Brick Wall”.
Benjamin Hubert, of design agency Layer, has come up with a modular acoustic partition system for Woven Image that’s incredibly flexible. Scale makes its debut as a sustainable option for creating workplace privacy and flexible spaces. It also provides audio absorption.
This paper by Dr Thomas Scelo describes the collaborative approach to develop a single algorithm for both acoustic and architectural form generation.
