Architectural Defects: A Celebration of Acoustic Aberrations

Lecture Theatre 1, Brooks building

Join us for a a special talk with Professor Trevor Cox (University of Salford) on the extraordinary architechtural sounds and sonic wonders that exist in the world.

Acoustic engineers expend considerable effort designing spaces that sound good. Problems, such as echoes and excessive reverberation, are carefully designed away. But what if these acoustic phenomena were instead celebrated?

We'll be joined by Professor Trevor Cox from the University of Salford who will consider how we might design to maximise any acoustic aberrations.

Professor Trevor Cox is known as 'the David Attenborough of the acoustic realm', holding the world record for the longest echo.

The event is free, and there is no need to book. Refreshments will be served from 5:45pm with the talk beginning at 6:30pm.
