The AA Alexandria Visiting School aspires to explore how sound can affect an architectural space. The objective of HyperSpace dB is to feed off of the rich aural environment of Alexandria to find new potential acoustic design; whether it be musical, soundscape, or tapping in to the sound energy generated by the populous city. The resulting archetype will integrate space design as a musical instrument, and the space’s “music” composition, as one intertwined paradigm. The challenge to be tackled is the nature of sound and the dynamic characteristics of a visually indiscernible design tool.
