  • Before Björk was Björk, she was a young girl from Iceland who would sing on long walks down wooded paths and in new rooms she’d discover in churches and houses.
  • Using advanced sound modeling software, Arup modeled possible designs for Björk’s onstage room, so the firm could virtually test how different building materials would affect the sound, from concrete and glass to various composites.
  • Eventually, they even set up a live, digital model in London that Björk could test before it was built.
