About the event
The design of tomorrow will increase the use of glass, concrete, exposed ceilings and other hand surfces into the built environment. These architectural elements not only deliver modern and desirable aesthetics, but also provide surfaces that are easily cleanable. The continued use of thes non-sound absorbing elements will present us with acoustical challenges and will have direct impacts on occupants well-being and productivity.
This course will dive into modern design and the health impacts related to these decisions. We will also explore the ways architectural acoustics imapct the interior environment and occupants. Lastly, we will learn how to properly identify and specify sound absorbing materials while exploring the types and benefits associated with luminaire integration.
- Examine modern design trends
- Examine the challenges and occupant impacts associated with these design trends
- Understand the basics of sound and how to create a sound environment
- Understand how to specify and apply sound absorbing luminaire types into open office environments
