When experiencing architecture completely, all of our senses should be apprehended. The increased presence of images surrounding us nowadays privileges sight alone – which makes us forget that architecture is also a whole capable of resonance.
Sound is omnipresent, from the rumblings of a city to the reverberations of a room. For the exhibition, many artists / architects / engineers / musicians will tune the space with “acoustic phenomena” that cover the greater part of the spectrum. These will act like “sonic freeze-frames” that may be heard and observed to understand a bit more of the sound-filled world which we inhabit. The acoustic installations are on par with “mute” ones, thereby forming a conversation through which the authors can express their respective approaches.
This body of works maps a ringing journey that will transform the Archizoom space into a vast echo chamber, where, in the words of Claudel, the eye is invited to listen.
