The Architecture of Sound | Shea Trahan | TEDxVermilionStreet

Shea Trahan’s TEDxVermilionStreet talk explores the interactive nature between architecture and sound. Using a combination of live demonstrations and pre-recorded examples, Shea Trahan shows us the power the built environment can have on sound and our emotional connection with that sound and space. Shea proposes using our current knowledge of the relationships between structure and sound to develop ideal chambers of meditation for therapy, study, and enjoyment.

Shea Trahan is paving an atypical path across the practice of architecture. He explores the interrelated nature of architecture and sound. He has degrees in architecture from both the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Tulane University. He has practiced architecture with firms in Dallas, TX; Lafayette, LA ; and currently, New Orleans, LA.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
