Mono 1/03 at Island of Werd (Photo: U. Ammann)

The project Mono 1/03 made it clear to what extent the acoustic conditions the built environment offers shapes its atmosphere, perception and use. For this reason we decided to focus our work on designing the architecture of urban spaces from an acoustic perspective.

"In one word: fascinating!"

"What you have created has been so touching, joyful and – in combination with the whole scenery – so large, that I see it as a testimony of vitality, chance, beauty; of what is possible considering the limited time we are given."

A visitor by email

"In one word: fascinating! ... Like sitting around a humming transformer with rapt attention. Actually not without an element of comedy. But not at all ridiculous. An aeroplane passing by overhead; its sound being part of the event, just as much as the singing of the swallows in the sky. ... It has been thrilling from start to finish."
