sound as architectural material is an attempt at exploring new ways for architecture to resonate with people.
binaural microphones are used to give a strong sense of place. crowd-sourced research is used to target specific emotions.
algorithms, sensors and http inputs can be used to effect compositions or create entirely new compositions.
sound as architectural material is intended to be played back with an array of directional audio emitters and subwoofers within the space for which the sound was originally intended. a good pair of headphones works well enough, too.
sound as architectural material is a project by sam stubblefield (www.samuelstubblefield.com). recorded in france, iceland, north korea, south korea, united states and vietnam. composed and mixed at La Maison de Jean in paris.

"...a piece of smart furniture that’s as poetic as it is useful." -Fast Company [more...]
"...given its attractive design and amazing versatility, we can only hope we see these innovative smart lamps very soon." -Brit + Co.
"...turn off notifications like calendar alerts, email popups, vibration alerts..." -PSFK.com
placeLamp connects to the owner’s smartphone and allows the owner to set multiple digital geofences around the lamp. the invisible geofences allow the lamp to know how far the owner is from the lamp. the lamp then changes color based on the distance of the user to the lamp.
for example, the placelamp might be set to turn blue when you are out of the country, a subtle orange glow when you are in the office (but not at your desk), and white when you are at your desk – where it functions as a task light. rather than dealing with “out of office” settings or notifying your team that you are “away,” this automated function provides an element that allows everyone to be a little more connected.
placeLamp can also be used to automate communication filtering. for example, placeLamp can be set to fade in-and-out when the owner gets a text, call or email from specific, owner-designated people. this allows the owner to turn off communication notifications (calendar reminders, email pop-ups, vibrating phones, etc.) that aren't related to the task at hand. this is a great way to immerse yourself in a project without worry of missing important communication.
We’re most excited about the potential in unique situations. What could this do in a hospital setting? How could it aid in communication for some that is deaf or hard of hearing?
(the lamp housing is made from recycled plastic and is recyclable)

"we have things. some things are useful. some things are beautiful. some things validate our hard work. some things remind us of times past. some things we forget about. some things don't work any longer. some things do nothing.
we asked our friends, our families and ourselves what we could do without. we collected some of those things to display for you. this odd assemblage aims to trigger thought around your ability to make small changes that have huge impact on others.
captured in a net, we tie the captured objects to overflow project. overflow is a platform for connecting you to people in need of water –a delightfully simple objective that creates real relationships between people that decide to live more simply and people in need."
