Design to your Ears

I’ve been noticing a lot of people talking about the importance of the acoustic amenity in Design and Architecture lately.

One of these people, who I consider a dear friend of mine, recently shared with me a TED talk by Julian Treasure on the effects of unwanted noise on the health and comfort of occupants of hospitals, teaching environments, restaurants, and – yes – even whole cities!

Julian has to know what he is talking about: he is chairman of  UK based, world-leading consultancy company The Sound Agency and author of the book ‘Sound Business’.

I found Julian’s point of view absolutely compelling and simply had to bring it to your attention.
