David Draper, a Part 2 student at the University of Greenwich, designed this recording studio using sound as a driving force.Employing computation, shape grammars and multi-agent programming, he made on-site recordings of people, traffic and urban activities and then used recording-studio technologies to identify the different activities by frequency and bandwidth. This technical data was reconfigured with a multi-agent programme to form the basis of a shape grammar. The sound levels created a number of elements with varying pitches, producing the floor plates.The programme then reconfigured the plates to coincide with the paradigm for the building.David Draper's tutors were Catherine Teeling, Alistair Barr and Layton Reid.
