SOUND SYSTEM DESIGN
Vanguardia provided architectural acoustic and sound system design services for Abu Dhabi Arena in United Arab Emirates, working with Foster & Partners and WSP engineers.
The design of the arena bowl included innovative automated acoustic panelling systems in order to facilate the use of the arena for a range of sporting and live music events. A variable acoustic electronic architecture was designed which adapted the acoustic of event spaces in conjunction with the acoustic panel systems.
The sound installation of the building envelope was designed in conjunction with detailed environmental modelling in order to protect the amenity of adjacent properties such as hotels.
A production sound system for the arena bowl was designed which provides addressable zones to deliver high quality sound coverage within each event mode. The bowl sound system was integrated with a wider networked (PAVA) system which provides coverage to back of house and hospitality areas.
