Hearing impaired people have always lacked a means to feel the sound. In recent years, sound visualization has become popular. We think that sound visualization can be used in buildings as a means to make hearing impaired people feel the sound again. In architecture, we use the combination of water and light to make the vibration of sound produce ripples on the water surface, and project these ripples into the building through sunlight, such as walls and floors. We hope that this will enable hearing impaired patients to feel the presence of sound again.
