Final Product!

This is the final sound map after a week's worth of analysis and design. The numbers on the map correspond to the sketches/descriptions about the sound on site.

Presenting our project to high school students so show them different aspects of architecture.

Photo Collage

Looking at using fun ways of illustrating where the sounds on site are coming from.

Mapping Techniques

We looked to represent the sounds of the areas in different ways. Looking at using cartoon like sound waves and simple textures we came up with a first draft of a map, showing the most prominent sounds in the area.

Sound Sketches

We collected all our sketches of how we represented sound, looking at how different shapes and line weights represented different tones and volumes. Using different sketching techniques (such as closing our eyes and sketching) to produce different outcomes and numbering them to match them onto a location on a map of the site.

Back to Studio

After our interesting day down at site the team got together to start compiling our ideas. Incorporating diagrams of the sound experienced on site, annotations, figure-ground maps, and typography we began to design the layout of the Sailortown sound map.
