From the connections between enclosure geometry and sound a potential future for acoustic architecture emerges. In this future, acoustic performance is an integral component of the design process, with surface geometries determined from the largest room scales down to the smallest sound absorbing pores. A continuous spectrum of geometric possibility encompasses traditional applied acoustic treatment, such as absorption and diffusion, and the debate surrounding the function of ornament is partially resolved.
