field trip

A recent project has me researching the principles of acoustics in spacial design. I visited the University of Victoria's Phillip T Young Recital Hall on a recommendation from a friend and was moved by the sound quality, layout and comfort of the space. See below for sketches and images from my visit.

My timing could not of been better as a masters violin student was practicing her art.


  1. Unusual to layout the seating this way.
    The ceiling is beautiful.

  2. How beautiful...the Chan Center at UBC is very much like it. We saw an Opera there last year, and the sound quality moved me to tears. It's smaller than the UVIC center I think, and every seat is a gem...not worth paying more.

    What a nice field trip...we need those sometimes. :)
