Giant Megaphones Amplify Nature’s Sounds

Just the mention of megaphones usually bring an unsolicited ringing to our ears but these gigantic ones are definitely not the annoying kind. Built by a group of interior architecture students from the Estonian Academy Of Arts, visitors of the Pähni Nature Centre where the wooden megaphones reside are invited to hear what nature sounds like magnified. The 3 megaphones were strategically placed and angled in such a way so as to amplify all the sounds of the forest in a surround-sound effect. For weary hikers, the art installation serves double-duty as a resting spot where one can recline, sit back, and rest their weary feet. For today’s tidbit of knowledge, Estonia is 51% lush forestry so the colossal acoustic system couldn’t have been imagined and built in a better place.
