acoustic Duplo panel, the Story

2 techniques of echo management

2 techniques

In interior spaces, there exists 2 techniques of acoustical dampening for the effective control of echo. Or more specifically, the reverberation time – the long fade of an echo.

We have the traditional technique, of materials that by their mass – thickness – absorb the energy of soundwaves.

Then we have diffusors. A whole different technique, where uneven surfaces scatter (split up) soundwaves. Which, from this surface are then reflected as many, many, smaller waves – with many, many, different paths.

Energy conservation – Low hanging fruit

Energy conservation – Low hanging fruit

We as human beings do things out of old behavior – habits – sometimes without reflecting over the logic of our behavior. I will present situations around energy saving behavior, which I have philosophized a lot about.

Are you familiar with the term “Low hanging fruit”? It means things that are easily reached, things that are available at closest reach.

I believe habits are formed because of the road of least resistance. In certain ways, things are simply easier. Therefore, there is a resistance to change a habit, a behavior.

And, if to change, there must be an certain experience of pain.
