Architectural acoustics in practice are often governed by post-applied porous absorbers and costly one-off solutions, which may limit the creative integration of acoustic design into the critical early phases of building design. The studies presented focus on the development and testing of novel acoustic clay-based tiles, which act as a composable hybrid design system including absorption and scattering properties that can be uniquely created to the site and use specific conditions, yet, it is based on a modular and affordable approach. Through experimental material studies, physical prototyping studies, laboratory and field measurement studies are the tiles developed and tested. The results show that the proposed configurable system and structure enables the articulation of specific scattering and absorption properties and that these can be activated to increase specific room acoustic qualities, measured on parameters of Reverberation Time and Definition in an auditorium setting.
