The future of architecture will not be tone deaf

Rob Rogers - Thursday, October 04, 2012
As I type the Yale School of Architecture is holding a fall symposium on "The Sound of Architecture". Although architecture has widely been seen as visual design, it is comforting to know that more and more architects are understanding the importance acoustics play in shaping the environment. There was a nice post on Metropolismag.com about the event. From their post:  

“Acoustics have been important to designers since the days of Vitruvius,” says co-organizer and Yale PhD candidate Joseph Clarke. “But architects often tend to think and design visually, with sound relegated to a secondary role. By bringing together a range of speakers across so many different disciplines, this symposium seeks to breathe new life into study of the sonic dimensions of architecture.”
