Ripple was an exploratory Digital Studio project completed as part of the USYD Masters of architecture program.
The project explores the development of a set of algorithmic design strategies that mitigate noise pollution, implemented within the context of Sydney's new metro line project.
Through a documentation of site sounds through a water experiment inspired by the works of Chladni, a range of data was available to us that drove the fabric of the building. From this we could develop a pattern forming logic that was directly driven by the sound of the site. Through investigating the acoustic quality of materials and how forms and shapes directly respond to sound we were able to enrich the site through a coherent design.
