Sonic environments created by the built environment have profound impacts on how buildings feel and function but are often neglected during the design phase. Here, we explore the fundamentals of sound in relation to architecture.
This is our first post for the 2018/2019 EDR Research Fellowship, which is one part in a series of discussions around audio and visual perception in architecture. Check out our podcast episode about the Fundamentals of Sound in the audio clip below, accompanied by a visual recap of the highlights.
