The Sound of Object, Space and Form

Thursday, February 2, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The Sky Room, L1201 2 W 13th ST., 12th FL.

The sound of a space is influenced by everything inside it. This connection between perception and surroundings has tremendous potential to transform the way objects and spaces are designed, but the gap between acoustic knowledge and design practice is too great. In this lecture Zackery Belanger will present a theory that has the potential to close this gap and make the current model of acoustics - as a separate field of expertise - obsolete.


Speaker: Zackery Belanger, Arcgeometer

Arcgeometer provides acoustic consultation and design services to clients, architects, and artists. The studio also develops beautiful acoustic geometries, materials, art, and installations. Zackery Belanger was the inaugural Researcher-In-Residence at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) in Troy, NY, where he began merging acoustics into architectural design. 

Host: Kate Sweater Hickcox, Part-time Faculty, Lighting Design

Sponsored by Parsons' School of Constructed Environments.
