Sound Design Intervention in an Open Studio: Linking Behavior, Spatial, and Acoustic Analysis

Apr 06, 2015

This study aims to understand the impact of noise generated by the various instructions occurring concurrently on the learning effectiveness in architecture schools and to offer design solutions to mitigate noise pollution. This study combines spatial and acoustic analysis of the architecture design studio at Southern Polytechnic State University and behavioral studies of the inhabitants of the space. These findings can be used to inform design solutions in similar open-plan studio spaces in architecture and design schools.
