Tuesday, September 20, 2022, 3:00 - 4:30 pm CT


Blind spot acoustics: Inclusive architectural soundscape design - AIA/CES #APA 255 1.5 LU/HSWs

presented by Chris Downey, AIA, and Joshua Cushner

 

Course description: This course builds out from the base-line condition of the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations regarding the acoustic environment in places of public accommodation towards a more effective, enjoyable and inclusive strategy of architectural soundscape design. This course takes a brief glance at the minimum acoustic and audible standards established within the ADA to then explore the deep sonic focus from within the blind and low vision experience. Intended for those with intermediate knowledge of accessibility and acoustics in design and construction, session participants will be better prepared to design delightful and functional ADA-compliant architectural acoustic environments.
