Why architects should be using their ears in design

Rob Rogers - Wednesday, October 03, 2012

"It's time to start designing for our ears." 

In this fantastic TED Talks video from July, sound expert, Julian Treasure explains why sound design should not be an afterthought in architectural planning. Sound affects us in so many ways, helping to shape our environment, helping to determine our ability to learn, communicate and be well. This video underscores the need for a greater awareness of the importance for considering sound in architectural design. This is certainly something near and dear to us. At AVD, we love working with architects to develop intentional sound design that enhances the functionality of a room rather than diminishing it.  

If you aren't familiar with TED, it started in 1984 as a conference for professionals in the area of technology, entertainment, and design (TED). Now the conference is well known, and videos of it's speakers (TED Talks) offer some of the most inspiring, progressive thinking in this industry. You can see more at http://www.ted.com/
