Acoustic Pavilion II

An architectural instrumental pavilion for classical music. Developed, designed and build for the Aalborg Culture Festival 2012 based on music, pine plywood, foam, acoustic simulations and evolutionary design process studies. The pavilion is instrumental to the musicians by their spatial location, with the structure acting as a reflector or absorber dependent on what end of the space sound energy is emitted. This combined with the origami folded wood-foam composite, makes for a sound structure through advanced material and geometric composition.

The project research work was furthermore published in the eCAADe International Conference Proceedings (2014) with the paper entitled 'Evolution of an Instrumental Architecture'. The paper can be downloaded as open-access from here

The project was developed together with Mads Brath Jensen and supported by a research and innovation grant from Realdania.
