Lecture “How to design acoustic spaces”
How to design acoustic spaces with Marco Fringuellino
Objectives of the training
The task is to provide a scientific base and an initial technical competence on the subject.
Obviously, it is impossible to become an acoustic designer in one afternoon, but the aim is to allow you to avoid big mistakes due to total ignorance of acoustics, and to enable you to understand what may be necessary for the space to have the desired sound and intelligibility of the words and when it will be necessary to bring an acoustic consultant into the architectural design team.
Furthermore, a second objective is to provide initial knowledge of the various acoustic phenomena involving materials and installation methods.
