Resonance Floyd, Alexander Gregory


This project asks whether it is possible to represent sound through the medium of architecture and site design. Through the medium of exterior exhibition and performance spaces, the design explores ways within which the non-hearing population could have their senses activated through moments of haptic enhancement as well as vibrational tectonics. The site chosen for this study holds potential to extract and probe the latency of site conditions such as wind, water and seasonal change to place a higher focus on tactility of materiality and construction assemblies. The goal is for these sound experiences to reside within highly concentrated sensory encounters between the non hearing and hearing population.
