Tangerine acoustic shelter is based on the premise that interventions should be a constructive consequence of a certain intention, where its most recurrent application is in the conceptualization of the skeleton and the skin, where the material takes a leading role in the plastic under this look and understanding the proposal as if out of a meticulously taken care anatomy dissection. The objective is to reduce noise pollution in public spaces or in transitional spaces within private places without sacrificing the mobility of the activities that are carried out. It is a flexible shell made of Troldtekt A2 panels with acoustic insulation qualities that, together with the geometry of the segment, generates a mini-atmosphere when immersed in the skeleton. The modular design encourages the free arrangement of the elements allowing flexibility in the spatial dynamics where Tangerine is inserted.
