Description

The idea of this project is based on my previous studio project: Timber in the City. I was asked to use timber as the main material in my space design. The innovation of timber should not only in structure for architecture, but also interior, floor, insolation, furniture, etc. After visiting to the site, I notice the unquietness of the environment of the site is a horrible fact for living there. Therefore, I focus on researching the possible solution of noise cancelling with wood or timber material. Based on the research on wood walls, I integrated the waffle structural system with wood, and invented five different variations: the normal grid, the deeper grid, the dense grid, and angled grid, and the grid with holes. All of these proposals based on the theory of either inceasing touching surface or transferring direction as the way to control noise from my precedence study. The main body of this project is testing these wall devices to see if they are effective block or influence the sound intensity.
