killer interactive installation for a park in china. m.
Penda based the design on the quote “Music is liquid architecture; architecture is frozen music” by German writer and politician Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The purple pillars of varying heights are intended to represent the rising and falling bars of a digital sound visualiser that synchronises with crescendos and diminuendos in music.
“Music, rhythm and dance in combination with the surrounding landscape were the main parameters shaping The Soundwave,” said the architects. “Resting on Goethe’s definition ‘Architecture is frozen music’, the aggregation of fins presents a solidified moment of a soundwave in motion.”
