REVERB: A SONIC DIMENSION AND SPATIAL METAPHOR

The design of (in)audible spaces in the sense of developing architectures and interior spaces in a virtual, imaginative or perceptual soundscape opens the possibilities of an embodied experience, an immersive journey, and a profound drawing of spaces.

Over the years, the relationship and analogy between music/sound art/sound design and architecture has been explored in several aspects. In the same way architecture works over the solid materials, visual spaces, geometry, abstract realities or social contexts, it does over the aural realities, the sonic dimension. When it comes to space, sound can be valued in an architectural process, just as architecture is also sonic. – Design Sound

Here is REVERB – A 1956 by Tai Ping Capsule collection inspired by the design of sound.
