Soundsurf

2011 Jan - 2011 Apr

This project is not about the urban nor about architecture. It explores the space between a designed urban code and its architectural manifestation.

Sound is the generator of soundsurf city. Strategies of noise mitigation are embedded in a code which creates soundsurf topography of building and circulation.

Program is placed on its ability to be activated by the sounds of the city. Along a crowded route, commercial is a buffer for residential behind.

In a more detailed study, parking interlocks with commercial and acts as an additional buffer for program and sound. Parking and Big-box are joined in ways which encourage new uses of wasted parking space and allow for commercial reappropriation over time.
