The Book of Acoustics

This is a handbook for architects and interior designers who want to create acoustically beautiful spaces that make people feel happier, healthier and more productive.

Here, you’ll learn the fundamentals of sound control and everything you need to know to start feeling more confident working with acoustic treatments in your design projects. When it comes down to it, it really is as simple as making people happy — whether they’re at work, school or conversing with friends over dinner.

  • An acoustic treatment is like the essential dressing that a naked, acoustically incomplete space needs to wear in order to function.

    Dr Luis Gomez-Agustina director of the UK Institute of Acoustics (IOA) Postgraduate Diploma at the London South Bank University (LSBU), UK
  • Acoustical design is about material quality and material position. Treatment should be selected first for the acoustics, and second for the aesthetics.

    Dr Naglaa Sami Adbel Aziz Mahmoud Head of Interior Design at Ajman University, in the United Arab Emirates.
