It is the first book since Beranek’s classic, Music, Acoustics and Architecture () to deal with auditorium acoustics in the wider context of architecture it can be read, understood and enjoyed by acousticians and architects alike.'/5(3).

Architectural Acoustics, Second Edition presents a thorough technical overview of the discipline, from basic concepts to specific design advice. Beginning with a brief history, it reviews the fundamentals of acoustics, human perception and reaction to sound, acoustic noise measurements, noise metrics, and environmental noise characterization/5(8).

This is an excellent foundation for architectural acoustics, with discussions of the acoustics of various rooms. One disadvantage is that it's a reprint of a book published inso all the information is in the old octave bands. Still, it's very by: It is the first book since Beranek’s classic, Music, Acoustics and Architecture () to deal with auditorium acoustics in the wider context of architecture it can be read, understood and enjoyed by acousticians and architects alike.' - Journal of Sound and VibrationCited by: Architectural Acoustics is one of the few books available that deal comprehensively with the principles and applications of acoustics in the design of buildings.

Acoustics in architectural design book highly-visual guide includes over illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the best design practices for limiting or mitigating noise in buildings by using the latest in materials and : Michael Ermann.

Architectural design requires that acoustics be well thought out and coordinated. The sound spectrum must remain clear without portions distorted or missing.

The paper, Acoustics and Sound Systems in Architectural Design, emphasizes how acousticians should be part of the design team early on. The author describes how it is important to avoid overlapping sound. It would take a library of a dozen titles to duplicate what s in this one book.

Architectural Acoustics is for the intelligent, college-level beginner, with a desire to learn basic concepts, as well as practical computation and design methods. There is nothing else in print that covers as broad an area of acoustics, and covers it in as much depth/5(12).

Here is my list of The 50 Best Architecture Books. Enjoy. Architecture: Form, Space, and Order. For more than forty years, the beautifully illustrated Architecture: Form, Space, and Order has served as the classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural design.

The updated and revised Fourth Edition features the fundamental elements of space Missing: Acoustics.

Modern concert halls and opera houses are now very specialized buildings with special acoustical characteristics. With new contemporary case-studies, this updated book explores these characteristics as an important resource for architects, engineers and auditorium technicians.

Supported by over 40 detailed case studies and architectural drawings of 75. Acoustics as a branch of physics involves heavy mathematics, and the practice of architectural acoustics involves knowledge of a broad range of subjects.

For these reasons, many people believe that good acoustics are almost impossible to obtain and exist only in concert halls.

With a solid understanding of the basics, however, rooms with good acoustics are not as hard to design. The book is written for architects, interior designers, engineers, and all others concerned with the design and construction of buildings who need to know the basics of architectural acoustics, but who do not have the time to digest wordy presentations/5.

Architectural Acoustics / David Egan For many architects, designing for the senses often means simply designing for sight and touch. This book gives. Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture.
