Seeing Sound: Psychoacoustics of Work and Play
Designing through the lens of sound

How can we shape a better world through sound? Should designers challenge the standard criteria and compliance requirements for designing environmental soundscapes? During our second Quarantine instalment, three experts in the field of sound shared thoughtful insights on the experiential and behavioural impacts of sound from workplaces to public spaces. The speakers delved into the art of designing with sound, demonstrating tangible opportunities to enhance the human experience, and how a better understanding of both physiological and psychological responses can offer choice-rich environments that cater to diverse needs.

Thanks to speakers Lauren Clark (Saint-Gobain Ecophon), Tateo Nakajima (Arts, Culture & Entertainment at ARUP) and Mitchell Allen (NSW Acoustics Audio-Visual and Theatre at ARUP).
