The Book of Acoustics
This is a handbook for architects and interior designers who want to create acoustically beautiful spaces that make people feel happier, healthier and more productive.
Here, you’ll learn the fundamentals of sound control and everything you need to know to start feeling more confident working with acoustic treatments in your design projects. When it comes down to it, it really is as simple as making people happy — whether they’re at work, school or conversing with friends over dinner.
I’m excited about variable acoustics… when you think about the potential of taking one room and giving it completely different purposes, or making a room that’s really intended for conferences or presentations also passable for musical performance, then you’ve just created two rooms out of one.
Acoustical design is about material quality and material position. Treatment should be selected first for the acoustics, and second for the aesthetics.
