Presented by Arts Centre Melbourne, Audio Architecture was a free Talks Program and 24hr Design Camp for students and graduates of art, design and architecture on the theme of cities and sound. Curated by Office for Good Design, the program brought together leading architects, sound designers, musicians and artists to contemplate how we can use sound to make better spaces. Audio Architecture marked the re-opening of Hamer Hall and was a celebration of this new meeting point for sound, architecture and design. Audio Architecture was a free event held at Arts Centre Melbourne.
Audio Architecture Talks was a series of lively conversations and especially commissioned performance-exchanges on the theme of cities and sound.
The Audio Architecture 24 hr Design Camp was a spatial study of dissonance. Over an intensive 24 hours, students explored the creative and collaborative intersections of sound and architecture through workshops, discussions, performances and design experiments. The provocation was to create a space in tension, oscillating between harmony and discord. The analysis centered on states of instability and their inherent dynamism. The question was what does this investigation means for the practice of art, design and architecture?
