Selected Projects / Provincial Health Services Authority: Shared Space, An Acoustic Installation

For the 2013/14 school year, the Health Design Lab partnered with the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) of BC to create a sound dampening installation for the atrium space in their newly renovated office facility. Led by Faculty Jonathan Aitken and Helene Day Fraser, the project enlisted Emily Carr Master of Design students to propose a design solution that improved acoustics as well as provided a more vibrant environment for this large community hub. The project also involved the acoustics expertise of Dr. Murray Hodgson  and Ioannis Kourloulis of UBC, and an innovative co-creation session with over 130 office workers, lead by third-year students, under the supervision of Deborah Shackleton and Jason Rupert.
