Uproar Small 2.jpg
 The humble megaphone inspires the design of Uproar. It has been an effective tool to speak to and gather groups of people for centuries. Its small size means it can only reach small crowds, however. To really make a statement, a grander gesture is needed. If one small megaphone can attract a small crowd…
 …then something more is needed to communicate to a larger audience. The idea of single speaker is amplified by growing, duplicating, and interconnecting four speaker cones from a single source.  
 This arrangement is then framed in and supported, essentially turning the platform into an acoustic loudspeaker, a platform for action. By trimming the cones to the frame, the bullhorn mechanism is exposed and celebrated.
 In order to expose and celebrate the gesture even further, a corner of the structure is lifted to reveal the riot of pipes that make up the inner workings to curious onlookers and encouraging a second level of public interaction with Uproar.
