The Distortion 2.0 project is the result of collaboration between researchers, architects and industrial partners. The endeavour is to create new interfaces between acoustical science and the build environment by integrating sound performance, design and production.
The combination of customized design solutions, computerbased acoustic simulation, parametric modelling techniques and the experience in high end materials and digital production technology allowed the creation of two spaces with specifically tuned acoustic performance. Their sonic and aesthetic sensations can be directly experienced.
The project challenges the way acoustics are generally thought. Where this is often either a narrow performance solution or even afterthought the project showcases a way to think and create sound and architecture at the same time.
