Unite the science of sound and the principles of design to
enhance any space

Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates the
quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic
language of architecture. This highly-visual guide includes over
350 illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the best
design practices for limiting or mitigating noise in buildings by
using the latest in materials and techniques. Each chapter includes
a summary checklist of design guidelines to help prevent mistakes
and oversights, and the Instructor's website offers video
animations demonstrating acoustical concepts. Designed as a "first
look" at the interaction of sound and space, the book explains the
principles of architectural acoustics and their practical
applications, providing a comprehensive guide for designing with
acoustics in mind.


Architectural acoustics is more than just concert halls ?
it may determine building placement, division of interior space,
exterior construction, and even siting. When addressed early in the
design process, the resulting space can be free of unwanted sound
and promote good hearing; if left unaddressed, the problems with
the space can lead to lawsuits and costly post-construction
remediation. Architectural Acoustics Illustrated helps
designers solve most acoustical problems in advance, by enabling
readers to:



  • Understand the physical science underlying the behavior of
    sound

  • Consider the interactions of sound and space in the initial
    design approach

  • Mitigate building sounds such as those produced by HVAC and
    plumbing with early design planning

  • Design spaces for listening, and incorporate acoustics best
    practices into every plan


The highly visual format of the book helps readers grasp complex
concepts quickly, and thorough discussion of each concept's
real-world application ties the science directly into the design
process. All design professionals need to have a fundamental
understanding of acoustics, and Architectural Acoustics
Illustrated
is a comprehensive, practical guide in an
easy-to-read format.
