Event description

Sound is at to the forefront of future-centered design.

For architects and forward-thinking designers, sound and acoustics are no longer an after thought. In urban cityscapes, open office floor plans and the forest floor, they are critical to quality of life.

While the grand reverberant sounds of a cathedral inspire a sense of awe, that same echoing room is a disaster in an educational setting.

Hearing a pin drop might be ideal in a library, it’s the opposite in a dining environment.

Sound shapes our world, our art, and our lives.

Come hear for yourself!
