Publisher's description: Michael D. Fowler uses semiotics, acoustic ecology, philosophy, mathematical modeling, architecture, music, landscape theory, and acoustic analysis to investigate the sound world of traditional Japanese gardens. Using data visualizations, immersive sound installations, algorithmically generated meta-gardens, and proto-architectural formfinding missions as creative paradigms, Fowler builds a framework for inquiry that generates knowledge through spatial thinking.
