“You attach deep memories to the sound of your surroundings,” says architect Gisle Nataas.
“Architecture as an instrument” is about using architecture and surroundings as instruments.
“By becoming aware of sound, we can become aware of architecture, materials and surroundings. We can look at our everyday surroundings with new eyes ”.
