    the original concept was for a echoless anechoic chamber.

      Hi jadeheshmatpour.

      What is it exactly the material shown in the pictures? Concrete? Some kind of plastic polyurethan? Looks pretty cool though...

      Jose Luis is probably foam.

      hi,
      yes, the material is foam. very similar to the kind you find in packaging.

      p.s. you should check out the earlier entry "fabricating" to see it in its unassembled, in-production state.
