Translating Ambiance: Designing Sound, Light and Air in Urban Spaces

Ambiance design creates small, localised environments that provide sites of restoration and experiential difference from the everyday noises and hubbub of the city. The event will include a curated set of conversations running concurrently with an in-situ installation. Hear a talk from sound-artist Jordan Lacey, and Shanti Sumartojo (MADA), on the meaning of ambiance in a design and architecture context. This will be followed by a live ambiance installation by Jordan Lacey, Philip Samartzis, Polly Stanton and Malte Wagenfeld. This event is funded and curated by Jordan Lacey (DECRA Fellow, School of Art / School of Design, RMIT University).

Location: Melbourne, Australia
