The course is focused on the subject of architectural acoustics. Starting from the analysis of the most famous auditoria and theatres in the world, the main concepts of acoustic design of interior spaces for speech and music will be given together with a large overview on the most updated techniques and materials to be used. The theoretical notions will concern the wave theory, the geometrical room acoustics and the diffuse field theory. The most important acoustic descriptors will be cited together with their main simulation and measuring techniques.
The educational concept is based on a comprehensive view, where theoretical knowledge will be combined with a project work on a case study.
