Resonant Form: The Convergence of Sound and Space

Sep 23, 2016

This body of research and proposed design methodology aims to focus on acoustic aesthetics to create spaces which manifest sonic phenomenon that not only elicit psychological responses for inhabitants but also induce shifts in brain states toward meditative and/or mystical experience. This design proposal strives to enlist the resonant natures of architectural forms to deeply engage and expand the sensory awareness of human spatial perception.
