Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture. Important to performance space design—as well as surface material selection, room shaping and sizing, building placement and orientation, building skin and barrier composition, space planning, and architectural detailing—building acoustics begins at the earliest stages of schematic design and continues through construction administration. Better building acoustics makes better buildings; architectural acoustics needn’t be a mystery. This highly visual guide includes over 350 illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the established methods of mitigating unwanted noise in buildings. With authoritative guidance on the latest materials and techniques, topics include a summary checklist of acoustic design guidelines.
