TED Talk: Shea Trahan on the Relationship Between Sound and Architecture

TED Talk: Shea Trahan on the Relationship Between Sound and Architecture

“As a designer, we create architectural spaces which are de facto instruments—they contain sound, they manipulate it, they can even create sound—so we’re tasked with a very powerful tool for affecting human cognition.”

In a recent TEDx talk given in Louisiana, architect Shea Trahan discusses the relationship between architecture and sound through a series of live demonstrations and pre-recorded examples. Learn about how spaces can better utilize sound to become ideal places of therapy, study, and enjoyment, by watching Trahan’s talk above.
