notation: score of the city
The Vienna Notation Project is about representing the city’s physical body by its construed perception. It is about re-scripting and transposing the cityscape into a soundscape, focusing on the interrelation of space and sound.
This interaction of all acoustical phenomena produced in the space and by the space creates the unique soundscape of a city. The identification and descriptive determination of all different quantities and qualities will be characterized in a 3D-code system: the city score.
The aim of this experimental studio is to develop tools and strategies to transform architectural demands - to shape the idea of space. Substantiating these demands offers the students the chance to understand architecture as a means of taking [spatial] position.
The experimental studio will be conducted in exchange with the “Nanjing Notation Project” (NanjingUniversity of Art, China).
