TED talk: Buildings must also be designed for ears

Architects are more interested in how a building looks than how it sounds. And poor acoustics are a major problem for health, productivity and our social lives.

These were key points by sound consultant Julian Treasure from the Sound Agency in Britain in an inspiring TED talk. He also provides examples of what is required to achieve better acoustics.

An introduction to acoustics

If the acoustics are poor, sound becomes noise. That is why it is important to know the concepts of sound pressure, speech intelligibility, frequency, reverberation and sound absorption value.
