Rate this:
Each space is a resonance box and so building for the music industry requires special designs and concepts - here an overview. Architecture and music share many parallel and intersecting elements. Recent developments in the music, film, and media industries have given rise to new building types for audio and visual media. These projects require a comprehensive approach from various disciplines to bridge architecture, art and technology. For more than 10 years studio bau: ton has been pre-eminently involved in drawing together these diverse disciplines. This book is an eclectic survey of issues central to building for contemporary media. Renowned guest authors from the fields of media and architecture have contributed ideas and projects, and an detailed overview of architectural acoustics serves as an integrated technical guide. Practical applications are presented in a beautifully illustrated portfolio of distinguished projects by studio bau: ton, ranging from museums to recording studios and film production facilities. Projects like the Fox Scoring Stage in Los Angeles or Bad Animals in Seattle are complemented by international examples such as Sony Music in Tokyo, X-Art in Austria and many more.
