This course teaches the fundamentals of acoustic design in architecture to achieve comfortable and accessible rooms for communication purposes, within a holistic design. It introduces the physical principles behind propagation, reflection, and perception of sound in architectural spaces, and how these can be designed. The course will allow the student to get in touch with different rooms, materials and sources, and develop small design exercises where sound is the dominant argument to create space. In parallel, a design to improve the acoustics of an existing foyer is developed in the course. The students are guided during the whole design process until the construction of the final acoustic solution.
