CANNES – MIPIM: Clients ranging from NYC’s Jazz At Lincoln Center complex ( Rafael Viñoly) to Philippe Starck’s Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires have engaged the architectural/acoustic design expertise of the WSDG, as have such legendary stars as Alicia Keys, Bruce Springsteen and Richard Gere. This week WSDG partners Sergio Molho (Buenos Aires) and Dirk Noy (Basel, Switzerland) will introduce this unique firm to MIPIM attendees.
“As leaders in the field of internal room acoustics, electro-acoustic design, and audio/ visual system design and integration we carry an important message to MIPIM 2012 attendees,” Sergio Molho said. “Acoustics are often an afterthought in building design and construction. Our experience has proven the earlier we are engaged on a project the more effective we can be in developing realistic, cost-effective, technically optimized solutions to the myriad of potential sound-related problems.”
Dirk Noy adds, “After thirty+ years of specializing in large scale hotel, conference and meeting room, home theatre, stadium, theatre, auditorium, club, house of worship, transportation hub, educational, and professional audio/video production centers, we have addressed virtually every imaginable construction and renovation acoustic challenge. In the process, we have saved clients significant cost and time over-runs. We look forward to sharing our experience with MIPIM exhibitors and attendees.”
