Arup Sound Lab

Chicago Architects Brininstool + Lynch: Arup Sound Lab

Arup Sound Lab

Chicago, Illinois

2012

Working with long-time collaborators Arup, SoundLab is a fittingly jewel-like space in the historic Jeweler’s Building along the Chicago River. Built to demanding standards, the glowing box is an acoustically isolated space for one of Arup’s fast-growing market sectors. To achieve the project’s luminous enclosure, acrylic panels were set in gasketed aluminum channels and backlit with programmable LED fixtures. SoundLab quickly became the iconic centerpiece for Arup’s Chicago Office.
