Recap of "The Sound of Architecture" symposium

Rob Rogers - Thursday, October 25, 2012

As previously mentioned, earlier this month Yale hosted "The Sound of Architecture" symposium. (Learn more here.) The symposium features speakers from an array of backgrounds all discussing topics that raise the awareness of how sound affects our environment and how architects and engineers can intentionally design with sound in mind. We just came across a fantastic recap of the symposium that we'd like to share. 

The blog's author describes each session in detail, from Barry Blesser and the "need to integrate the auditory dimension into the education of architects" to Jonathan Sterne and a simple theory of convolution reverb. It's a great read, and a great resource for architects and sound designers interested in understanding emerging thinking and technology that will help us to enhance our lives through better design spaces than consider the implications of sound. 

There are 7 recap entries starting here. Enjoy!
