Talking Cities

The interactive Audio Lounge provides the framework for Talking Cities Radio, designed exclusivly for Talking Cities. The Lounge was be realised in cooperation with students from the 'Hybrid Space' project group of Prof. Frans Vogelaar, Academy of Media Arts, Cologne. The four sculpted audio seating areas are traversed by broad bands, each carrying the audio signal of one of the four radio stations. By means of little cable spools in which loudspeakers are integrated, visitors can go to any point along a band and listen to the programme of that particular radio station in German, or in English.
