Abstract


Today, population growth has resulted in an increase in building activities to satisfy the need for a variety of social gathering areas. Out of this grew a need for inside spaces with sound functionality, and a rise in the importance of architectural acoustics. The principals of architectural acoustics were established in the 1920s, and these remain as an important project parameter to be resolved at the design stage in the case of opera houses, theaters, and concert and conference halls. In this study, the importance of design in terms of volume, geometry and structural form for sound functionality is investigated.
