Designing, Simulating, and Prototyping Acoustic Architecture

Brady Peters


The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, at the University of Toronto is developing a robust research program focusing on acoustic architecture. Building on past research projects that have demonstrated how sound can be integrated into architectural design workflows, new research seeks to build on advances in architectural computational design and digital fabrication to develop bespoke design methods and innovative surfaces. Advanced robotic fabrication machinery enables the production of complex prototypes, and digital tools enable room acoustic performance can be simulated. Details of past and future research are highlighted in this short summary.
