What are you thinking, when you stand in a room alone and can hear your own footsteps, even your own breath?
Let me introduce you to this room. Some said it was creepy room, but at the same time, sophisticated? Its name is Anechoic Chamber!
Anechoic chamber is an interesting room, which it used by mechanical engineers and physic engineers for testing some acoustic equipments. For that purpose, they need a room, without any sound and vibration around it. After that, engineers built the room for this, and gave anechoic chamber as its name.
This room has a unique interior, with a lot of wedges in wall, ceiling, even below the floor. The wedges also need a special material made by metalfiber, which is used to control the humidity inside the room.
In ITB-JICA project, anechoic chamber will prefabricated by International Acoustic Company from Australia. This room has a little bit complicated to build, because when this sub-contactor fabricating this chamber, the contractor, at the same time, also need to provide the space for the blank room.
For the information, anechoic chamber is the most expensive room among all in this building project. Its cost no less than a luxury house, about billion rupiah. Soohisticated isn’t it?
Last, what is the most interesting part from this room? For me, a native australian with british accent explaining the ded drawing to his clients. Soooo out of context, i am sorry.
