A set of bizarre concrete sound amplifiers dating from the interwar years are to benefit from a new lease of life. Artist Lise Autogena, working with engineer b consultants, has received a £10,000 grant from the RSA as part of its Art for Architecture programme. The structures, part of a military experiment with acoustic technology, form a striking sculptural presence along the Kent coast. Two new structures will be built on opposite sides of the Channel, in Folkestone and Boulogne, allowing the public to listen to the sounds of the sky.
