Architectural Defects: A Celebration of Acoustic Aberrations

Branch lecture

Prof Trevor Cox (University of Salford)

Acoustic engineers expend considerable effort designing spaces that sound good. Problems such as echoes and excessive reverberation are carefully designed away. But what if these acoustic phenomena were instead celebrated?
Prof Cox will look at less well-known examples of extraordinary architectural sounds and the many sonic wonders that exist. He will also consider how we might design to maximise these acoustic aberrations. Prof Cox has been described as the David Attenborough of the acoustic realm and currently holds the world record for the longest echo. This will be a fascinating talk.

Refreshments from 17:45. Talk starts at 18:30. 

No booking needed. All welcome.
