Italian firm Architettura Sonora isn’t your typical architecture business. They’re a team that also includes landscape designers, acousticians and engineers who leave their unique stamp on a place through the infusion of sound.
During Milan Design Week this year the firm was asked by INTERNI to participate in an exhibition titled Feeding New Ideas for the City at the University of Milan. The event came out ahead of Expo 2015 scheduled for May and was intended to develop ideas for the upcoming event.
In addition to the installations seen in the video, Architettura Sonora was there to curate sound for the event. The firm states that they developed “the relationship between natural materials and technological innovation.” They contributed speakers, termed “architectural sonic modules,” which were a part of their “Raw” collection. You can see their modules at work in the video above; they’re the small sculptural pieces in pigmented terracotta. Another work on display, an onyx-colored cylinder, also appears to be their handiwork.
More photographs of the installations follow.
