Acoustics: architecture, engineering, the environment
"This practical reference for design professionals and those in related fields, applies the latest research on sound behavior, high-performance materials, and audiovisual systems to a wide variety of building types and uses. Case studies draw on the firm's 22 years of experience as acoustical engineers, with drawings and diagrams helping to explain what can't be seen, only heard. Acoustics ""... takes what could be a dry, academic manual and infuses it with the energy of real life solutions."""
