FAQ on Room Acoustics and Treatment. Room acoustics and how to treat a room is a HUGE topic, this page only a scratches the surface of Room acoustics as there are so many different variables that effect sound.

FAQ on Room Acoustics and Treatment.

Only the main topics will be discussed here and should form a good starting point for learning what you want in this topic. This page concentrates mainly on improving the sound of a room, NOT sound proofing a room which is completly different. Playing Card Polyhedral Construction. Above is a rhombicosidodecahedron, one of the Archimedean solids.

Playing Card Polyhedral Construction

It is "uniform on its vertices" , which means that every vertex is equivalent. At each vertex there is a pentagon, a square, a triangle, and another square. There are 60 vertices. Above is the dual to the rhombicosidodecahedron. It has 60 faces. Our construction replaces each face with a card. Above is a computer rendering of the construction.

High Performance Spaces: concert halls and opera houses that hit the right note. Henning Larsen Architects' new Harpa Concert & Conference Centre was conceived of as part of Reykjavik's harbour-development project; photo © Osbjørn Jacobsen Given the digital times in which we live, there's something reassuring about the fact that intelligent, relevant and inspiring performing-arts venues are still managing to be designed and built.

In all their glorious materiality, they cock a cultural snook at the ever-growing disembodied consumption of online and downloaded music, dance and other art forms. The architects collaborated with celebrated Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, whose striking 'quasi-brick' glass façade exploits the natural light of the building's location to produce a dynamic play of colours; photo © Osbjørn Jacobsen The main auditorium at the Harpa Concert & Conference Centre; photo © Osbjørn Jacobsen Horseshoe-shaped balconies in the main auditorium bring visitors closer to the action, while encouraging people-watching. Diorama. The word diorama /ˌdaɪəˈrɑːmə/ can either refer to a 19th-century mobile theatre device, or, in modern usage, a three-dimensional full-size or miniature model, sometimes enclosed in a glass showcase for a museum.


Dioramas are often built by hobbyists as part of related hobbies such as military vehicle modeling, miniature figure modeling, or aircraft modeling. [citation needed] Etymology[edit] The word "diorama" originated in 1823 as a type of picture-viewing device, from the French in 1822. The word literally means "through that which is seen", from the Greek di- "through" + orama "that which is seen, a sight".

Daguerre's diorama consisted of a piece of material painted on both sides. The modern diorama[edit] The current, popular understanding of the term "diorama" denotes a partially three-dimensional, full-size replica or scale model of a landscape typically showing historical events, nature scenes or cityscapes, for purposes of education or entertainment.

The Bauhaus was initially supported and funded by the Weimar Government, but in 1925, the support was withdrawn and the School moved to Dessau.


In Dessau, the Bauhaus used many of its ‘modernist’ principles to design functional housing for the Government. In 1932, the Bauhaus moved to Berlin. Bauhaus was a front due to the numbers of Russian artists, including Kandinsky, who were a part of the Bauhaus. In 1933, in accordance with other acts to shut down all non-Aryan forms of artistic expression, the Bauhaus was closed. This was the same year than many Jewish Professors and Directors were removed from University Positions and Government appointments in the arts, including the Opera and Symphony houses and Museums.

Jean Arp. Kandinsky: Composition IV. Yuko Nishimura - Optical paper folding. Wednesday, 16 August 2006 The simple act of folding paper gives rise to sculptural forms that with particular lighting can produce architectural forms and geometric patterns of subtle contrast.

Wassily Kandinsky. Excerpted from "Kandinsky: Compositions", by Magdalena Dabrowski Kandinsky and Music "The term "Composition" can imply a metaphor with music. Kandinsky was fascinated by music's emotional power. Because music expresses itself through sound and time, it allows the listener a freedom of imagination, interpretation, and emotional response that is not based on the literal or the descriptive, but rather on the abstract quality that painting, still dependent on representing the visible world, could not provide.
