The Sound of Spaces: Understanding Acoustics in Architecture

About this event

In this event, we focus on the integration of acoustic design in architecture and interior design, with 1 CPD point available.

Sound and acoustics are important considerations in the design of spaces for human occupation, interaction, and well-being. The sound of buildings is a vital component of the experience of occupants and the planning, geometry and finishes of spaces.

This talk will provide a practical overview of the design of spaces for sound and how these aspects are integrated into holistic design responses.

Delivered by industry experts Dr Peter Holmes and Ben Percy, you will learn about qualities that well-considered acoustic design brings to architecture.

Join us for an informative one-hour discussion and an optional opportunity ask questions

1 CPD POINT AVAILABLE

Registrations are required.
