The sound of architecture matters. Unfortunately, many schools, hospitals, offices and urban spaces are not fit for purpose. As a result of poor acoustics, students in classrooms can miss a lot of what their teachers say and patients in hospitals can have trouble sleeping.
Sound must be considered in the design process. To address the acoustic challenges faced by the health and education sectors, Knauf has released two acoustic design guides for each of these sectors, as well as a series of blogs that provide detailed information about reducing noise and improving acoustics. Knauf believes it is much easier and cheaper to design with good acoustics, low noise and good sound systems from the start. soundofarchitecture.com
