Esquis’sons ! Outils d’aide à la conception d’environnements sonores durables

Abstract : The present project explores in 6 sustainable neighbourhoods in Europe (Germany, Spain, France and Sweden) the sound qualities of intermediate spaces located on the building facades like balconies, loggias, terraces and circulations. A cross analysis of the physical dimensions of the built space, of the sound environment and of the user’s perceptions allows to describe the minimum conditions of existence of these remarkable sound situations. All of this work is compiled in a directory that is the first tool for sound design of such type of spaces. This directory is available in paper format in the Appendix of this report and online on the portal Esquis'Sons ( Thanks to this application (free download on the website), it is possible to make a 3D virtual environment sounds and to hear the impact of architectural choices made by designers. The auralization module is informed by the geometric characteristics of the spatial pattern and vice versa. In other words, this application lets you sketch a space by listening.
