Contact Info: Customer Service (

A century’s worth of research into the effects of noise has found that long‐term exposure to loud sounds contributes to hearing loss; those who sleep in noisier environments are more prone to heart disease; and subjects suffer cognitively when assigned to tasks that involve careful listening in noisy environments. This course discusses design considerations, materials, and methods to improve noise control in buildings. This course is part of a seven-part series that translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture. Each section can be taken as an individual course.
