Sound of the Future – An Acoustic Wall for IBM
We are designing an acoustic wall system for the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory in Rüschlikon. Based on the research project acoustic bricks we will learn how to use Rhino Grasshopper to design the wall and control the fabrication at Keller Ziegeleien with an industrial arm robot. The 60 square meter large wall will be permanently installed at IBM’s Client Center welcoming their visitors, clients and partners from December onwards. En route, we will learn about acoustics, digital design and robotic fabrication as well as get a rare insight into new technologies such Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and quantum computing currently being researched at IBM.
