About

Arcgeometer develops architectural surfaces and objects for acoustic performance. Our process draws from a geometric theory of acoustics, described in the essay Acoustic Ornament, which leverages material, shape, and light to yield new architectural possibilities.

Zackery Belanger was educated in physics and architectural sciences, spent the 2000s working as a consultant and researcher for Kirkegaard Associates in Chicago, and the 2010s retooling our approaches to acoustic design. He was the inaugural Researcher-in-Residence at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and recently completed the essay Acoustic Ornament, which seamlessly connects non-acoustic surfaces and objects with those intentionally designed for sound.
