POLA at the world’s leading trade show for industrial technology
The research platform BUILDING ART INVENTION/ Prof. Heike Klussmann presents the POLA research project at the Hannover Messe Hall 2, Stand C28, April 01 - 05, 2018. The new sound protection system centers on the development of a new system for the attenuation of low-midrange and bass frequencies, featuring lightweight unitized construction customizable to any indoor or outdoor location.
The system combines two seemingly dissimilar materials: air, a sound-propagating medium that also happens to be the mixture of gases in the atmosphere (1 m³ = 1.293 kg) and (U)HPC, or (ultra) high-performance concrete, a lightweight concrete composite with a refined aesthetic. This marriage of sculpture and function is the fundamental idea behind POLA.
