How to create great acoustics in grand spaces

‘Acoustics’ in architecture is all about optimizing the sound environment. Two overarching categories used when discussing acoustics are soundproofing and acoustical treatment. While soundproofing is about reducing noise, acoustical treatment is about improving the quality of sound within a space. In this article, we will focus on the latter and take a look at several acoustical treatment strategies adopted in some of the world's greatest spaces for sound. All building surfaces and materials have abilities to absorb, reflect or transmit sound. When sounds are reflected, they cause an increase in the overall echo and reverberation levels in a space. When treating rooms correctly, echo and reverberation is reduced. To treat rooms... More
