RCKa: Acoustitch

December 2015
In 2015, London architecture practice RCKa completed Acoustitch, one of two winning designs in the Ground Floor Project competition organised by The Crown Estate in partnership with The Architecture Foundation. RCKa worked with East London-based suppliers Cutfoam to devise a high-quality, cost effective way to fabricate the artwork, which is constructed from 789 pieces of high-density acoustic foam cut into triangular forms. Taking their cue from traditional woven fabric swatches, the triangular forms are grouped and rotated to form a homogenic texture and pattern, to maximum visual effect.
