cono sonoro the megaphone shaped amplifier by recollocal and studio superfluo

 

‘cono sonoro’ is a structural device that amplifies the sound the of the natural landscape, within cliento’s national park in italy. the installation acts a place of refuge, where one can meditate, observe, meet with friends and enjoy the intimate setting provided by its rounded form. urban regneration platform recollocal, along with studio superfluo, used wood, stones, branches and cords to form the basis of the construction, which takes influence from the megaphone-like library spaces made by estonian students in 2015.

 

 

 

 

 

the installation is located within the ex-foundry, and artistic residence dedicated to the artists of salerno, including painter, sculptor and mosaicist ugo marano. the concept was devised by architects liviano mariella and giuseppe avagliano from recollocal and designer sebastiano pirisi from studio superfluo. the residency project, titled ‘transluoghi‘, was developed in order to generate a new territorial and cultural space which would act as a natural social intervention bringing community and local creatives together.

the overall project was developed in collaboration with 30 architects, designers, engineers, gardeners and students, who studied the morphology and layout of the land. the completion of the structure was celebrated with a musical event, bringing locals, artists and visitors together to enjoy the sound projected from the installation.
