-Images from Detroit Soundscape, where the landscape is created via acoustical analysis of the site and implementation of a barnacle-like algorithm which covers the surface in a quadratically diffused pattern. The growth pattern is created from an aggregation l-system working in sequence with collision detection, quadratic random number generator, attraction points, and acoustic reflection angle. Combined these systems aim at the trajectory of creating an acoustically enhanced performance shell acting as a new micro-iconic urban acupuncture strategically placed throughout Detroit to enhance urban pedestrian culture.

    Thanks a lot for your time.
