Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: there was once a library designed to aesthetic perfection, a work of wonder, an architectural masterpiece. But not long after the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the building started to slowly sink. Why? It turns out that the library had a critical design flaw – the architect didn’t account for the weight of all the books.
Fortunately, the story of the “sinking library” is merely an urban legend. But there is a message behind the myth that remains relevant for all those in the field of architecture, engineering, and construction – design professionals should take great care to ensure that their structures are built for their purpose and occupants, not just beauty. In this digital age, this idea even extends to the audio-visual systems used in a space.
Better Architectural Design Through AV Integration
AVitecture involves the careful and planned integration of audio-visual technology into a structure’s architecture. AEC pros can enhance the AV experiences of building occupants with custom fit systems designed for each unique space. In addition, AV can heighten the design of the structure and serve as the “WOW” factor that gets people talking.
Indoor spaces that are perfectly suited for integrating audio-visual systems like digital displays, touchscreens, and wayfinding kiosks include:
- Conference rooms
- Briefing Centers
AV integration isn’t limited to the indoors as it can enhance exterior spaces as well. Creative designers should consider:
- Outfitting outdoor spaces with large format traditional displays
- Incorporating accent displays that highlight features of the building
- Leveraging full media playback systems to turn heads and serve the audio-visual needs of occupants
