Musicity and Sto Werkstatt are proud to present Unseen Architecture, a sequence of two online events this Autumn that explore sound and space from the perspective of architects, designers and musicians

Unseen Architecture celebrates the launch of MSCTY EXPO (curated by Nick Luscombe and Clare Farrow) a set of commissioned music pieces and experimental sound art realised in response to the acoustic qualities and concepts of specific unrealised buildings or imagined architectural projects from seven prominent architects. By bringing together architects, musicians and acousticians, these events are an opportunity to consider the creative possibilities of sound at the design stage of architecture, and to explore the links between architecture, music and acoustics.

Hosted by Musicity Expo co-curator and writer Clare Farrow, this second discussion in our series will take it’s starting point in the choreographed movement, time and sound in designer Lily Jencks’ new work, The Horizon: your steps are a metronome. 30 minutes, 23 July 2020, and multimedia artist and composer Yuval Avital’s Meditations on Daniel Libeskind’s ‘Theatrum Mundi’. directors Maurizio Mucciola & Maria-Chiara Piccinelli, and Arup specialists Ed Elbourne and Ned Crowe will also give their perspectives on designing for music and theatre spaces.

The design of good building acoustics is an unseen architecture and Sto are proud to support Musicity in the production of these events. The launch of MSCTY EXPO this Autumn highlights the diverse sonic potentials of considering sound at the design and concept stage of an architectural project. And in turn, the ways in which sound has the unique ability to invisibly colour and enhance the qualities of a building. Sto have a complete portfolio of acoustic reverberation control systems and the expertise to provide an acoustic solution for any interior project satisfying both visual and audible qualities of a building.
