Mapping sound is forming a place where sound becomes as much a part of auditory experience, as the material of sound itself.
Architectural form hence, is a product of "place-based" sound features within a spatial experience of opportunities to situate a listener with an intensification of immediate experience that expands beyond a point of focus to an environmental situation. This project is a discussion and negotiation where "mapping communication" is the mapping of sounds which cannot be built, but effected by the built. The aural geography and locational mapping becomes less a place-holder of spatial urbanistic viewpoints, but a broad theme of global listening points--thus, to listen to a sound, is to listen to the entire body of the sound world in micro-detail (footnote).
