The acoustic measurement of an existing building or landscape enables the capture of characteristic audio impulse response data that can be used to help preserve a site's intangible acoustic heritage and allow further analysis of its sonic features (Figure 1). Where acoustic measurement is not possible, computer modelling allows us to imagine, build and interact with these sites in the digital domain. This may involve the adaptation of an existing site to investigate particular features, or the reconstruction of a building that no longer exists, or only exists in part.
