    The assembly hall (Konzilsaal) in the German city of Konstanz is a historical venue—back in 417, the first and only election of a Pope in Germany took place there.  Preserved in its original state and used as a concert and event venue today, the hall offers a unique historic atmosphere together with memorable sound.

    When Grand Canyon University’s Antelopes men’s and women’s basketball teams joined the Western Athletic Conference this summer and upgraded to Division I, GCU Arena was in need of a sound system retrofit worthy of the new division level. To accommodate, GCU turned to the local Phoenix office of Clearwing Productions, which provided two independent L-Acoustics ARCS WIDE and KARA loudspeaker systems for the 5,000-seat multipurpose venue. Installed in late June, the arena’s fixed audio system for athletic events, commencement ceremonies… View this post

    The Oostende Post Office, the only public building designed by famed Ghent architect Gaston Eysselinck, has been recognized as one of the finest architectural creations of Belgium’s postwar period. In 1981 the modernist style building was granted status as a protected monument. When the Post Office moved out in 1999, B-Architects, under the direction of Dirk Engelen, undertook the massive challenge of creating multiple modern theaters and performance spaces inside, while respecting the venue’s design ethos. The result is De… View this post
