Acoustically Incompetent: The Need For Architects To Learn To Listen?

I want to share this post by John Mayberry of prosoundweb.com for my daily audiophile roundup about how Modern American architects have a tendency to design rooms without considering their acoustic properties before construction begins. Sounds within a room become harder for humans to understand as they bounce around a room. Many methods – including very affordable ones – have been devised to reduce this effect, yet there are still plenty of American venues with poor acoustics. Reasons for this oversight may include a lack of acoustic education in architectural schools and a narrow focus on lighting by the architect.

It’s something of an important issue for us naturally. A good read and well worth your attention:
