RISD Foundation Arts and 3-D Sound Studio

Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) hired DBVW Architects to create a space for sound-focused research. The University wanted to support both collaborative learning and bookable, individual studio time outside of class sessions. The result is an innovative laboratory for design, composition, and research outfitted with pin-up boards on the walls to encourage student interaction and provide flexibility for professors and visiting artists, as well as an adjoining audio room that offers students the opportunity to experiment with augmented reality and spatial audio (3d sound). DBVW worked closely with RISD during the design process and provided multiple renderings, which helped the school envision the project and get buy-in from multiple stakeholders.
