Product Description

Review

"Reviews of the First Edition" A monumental study which supersedes Beranek's 1962 classic... Barron's present book is a must for all architects faced with a major auditorium."" The Architects' Journal ..."wonderfully clear exposition and a fascinating study...an excellent textbook and an introduction to the subject of acoustics which all theatre technicans would find useful."" The Stage This book is undoubtedly destined to become a classic. It is the first book since L L Beranek's classic," Music, Acoustics and Architecture (1962) to deal with auditorium acoustics in the wider context of architecture...it can be read and enjoyed by acousticians and architects alike..."it is beautifully written and produced and hence worth every penny"" Journal of Sound and Vibrations ."

This is an excellent book both in terms of explaining the principles behind concert hall design and providing reference information for numerous British concert halls, recital halls and theatres.
The technical explanations are extensive and thorough but the maths is largely confined to the appendices making it easy to follow.
A particularly valuable aspect of this book is that it correlates objective measures of acoustic performance with a subjective evaluation.

It's inspired on Beranek's 'Concert Halls and Opera Houses', but (technically and scientifically) very far from the other one!
For the (pornographical) price, I don't recommend it to any one .... even for architects!!

I'm using it for my thesis about adaptable acoustics in multi-use performance spaces. It clearly show how different performances affect acoustics requirements.
