Hengelo 2008 /

By the spiral staircase you can reach the sound-proof space on top of the sea-containers. In the studio itself there is a supersonic sound system. Any student can connect his mp3 player to the amplifier and listen to his favorite music in a perfect sound quality. The studio makes it possible to get completely absorbed in the music. Next to the joy of listening to their own music, an important aspect is that students can share their favorite songs with their fellow students. The outside of the studio is a façade of 600 different second-hand speakers. They don't work any more but you can look at it as if it were a wall of sound. A few round forms from the speakers are taken out and replaced by windows.
