The Listening Studio, a breakthrough innovation for people with hearing loss that recently opened at the Center for Hearing and Communication
in lower Manhattan, was fabricated by students and faculty at NJIT's College of Architecture and Design
using the university's Fabrication Laboratory, or FABLAB. The audio and video installation is acoustically designed to simulate an array of real-life listening environments. Brooks Atwood, an adjunct professor of architecture at NJIT and a principal of POD DESIGN+MEDIA LLC
, helped design the project. The Studio is open to the public by appointment only by calling (917) 305-7766.
