Most tend to see and talk about architecture as a 3D discipline, focusing on its visual, spatial and functional aspects. But architecture is always experienced in 4D. Sound and acoustic aspects are crucial for people’s experience of public spaces and places that have always been at the core of reSITE’s interest.
MAAT Museum and reSITE brought world’s best creators of sound spaces and acoustic experiences to Lisbon, including 18 global leaders in designing sound spaces, sound engineers, design influencers and artists to rethink sound and space. This one-day international event was organized in collaboration with Meyer Sound and held in parallel to Bill Fontana's large scale Shadow Soundings live-streaming video and sound installation at MAAT.
Thank you for joining us in the journey through a gauntlet of what I believe to the best knowledge from around the world at the intersection of architecture, experiment, art and sound innovation.
