UVA, School of Architecture

Designer: Joel Sanders, Architect

Joel Sanders’ design vision for the University of Virginia, Architecture School – Sound Lounge used carpeting to integrate specific indoor, outdoor, and wall spaces. The high-traffic environment required resilient materials that could also double as acoustic dampeners.

Aronson’s developed a new style of seaming using fiberglass tape to meet the challenge of the unique shapes, sizes, and precise edgings required by the design. All of the pieces were hand-cut and fabricated modularly at Aronson’s New York City workroom. Normally with an installation of this precision, Aronson’s own installers would ensure that the work be completed to specifications; in this case, all work on campus was completed by local union labor.
