Aesthetics vs. Acoustics
Peter Rogers was honoured to be asked to Chair a meeting recently hosted by Rockfon at The Word, South Shields’ impressive state-of-the-art cultural venue, which brought together a good mix of people from different areas of the industry, to explore the relationship between aesthetics and acoustics.
Principally, what emerged was a clear message that there is no need to compromise the visual aspects of projects where good design is embraced and acoustics is considered early. Peter said “this sort of event shows how we can accelerate our learning in achieving a truly holistic design, that does not place the consideration of acoustics at the end of the queue, thereby making it a problem. With good design, great aesthetics and acoustics can be achieved. Thank you Rockfon for the opportunity to debate this”.
