As part of this September’s Design Week the BE OPEN Sound Portal will appear in Trafalgar Square, London.
This is an entirely new kind of installation that focuses on the design that you can’t see – that of acoustics and sound – rather than visual spectacle.
The black, rubberised structure will be home to finely-tuned audio technologies aimed at delivering pure acoustic experiences to visitors and every day the BE OPEN Sound Portal will host one of five leading musicians and sound artists, each of whom has been specially commissioned to create a unique soundscape.
The BE OPEN Foundation, a global initiative to foster creativity and innovation, and the London Design Festival are co-producing the project and the structure has been designed by Arup, world leaders in the area of acoustic engineering.
