Research on geopolymer technology to build an acoustic shell prototype
Ari-Kat is research into acoustic architectural applications of the innovative and sustaible technology of geopolymer, discovered by chemist and egyptologue Professor Joseph Davidovits, based on millennial Ari-Kat egypcian technology (developed by architect Imhotep). For a detailed description of geopolymer technology see the Geopolymer Institut and its archaeologic research. The Ari-Kat project experiments with this technology into the design of a prototype of aural architecture and sound sculpture, an acoustic shell to reflect, resonate, amplify or sublimate soundscape qualities in specific places.
