Aural spatial mapping tool: Constraining the signal sphere of influence validation (WIP) (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Barakat, M. (2016, July). Aural spatial mapping tool: Constraining the signal sphere of influence validation (WIP). Paper presented at SummerSim 16

This paper is part of an on-going investigation with the primary objective of developing a computational modeling tool for urban design that generates qualitative aural spatial patterns. The architect is the target user of this computational tool.... Read More about Aural spatial mapping tool: Constraining the signal sphere of influence validation (WIP).

An architectural approach to the Soundwalk method (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Barakat, M. (2016, July). An architectural approach to the Soundwalk method. Paper presented at Sonic Environments

A series of on-site surveys are conducted to observe possible qualitative aural pattern formations by using spatial measurements as fundamental parameters. The method assimilates the Soundwalk technique and the Relative Approach from the fields of so... Read More about An architectural approach to the Soundwalk method.

Emerging urban aural patterns: Finding connections between emergence in architecture and soundscape eEcology (2016)
Journal Article
Barakat, M., & Weinstock, M. (2016). Emerging urban aural patterns: Finding connections between emergence in architecture and soundscape eEcology

Cities are dynamic, spatial and material systems that exhibit power scaling and selfsimilarity across a range of scales. Spatial designers are informed by mathematical and biological systems and use concepts and processes abstracted from them to anal...
