How can we use the visual aspects of sound to come to new ways of thinking about architecture?

Normally designers use the acoustic experience on a very functional level. I see them as starting points and try to use them to discover new ways of thinking about architecture. Within ‘archicoustics’, I develop multiple ways on thinking about space and its characteristics through installations, publications, lectures and other experiments. To create visual (mental) images through auditive intervention and thereby come to new ways of thinking about architecture.

Archicoustics found the metaphor of ‘Phonautograph’, which brings a set of sound bites, musical pieces, weblinks, acoustic expression and spontaneous recordings that inspire to go deeper and deeper into the sound experience of architecture.
