Virtual Panel Event
Acoustics Matters: Shaping Sound in Healthcare Environments
Date: January 7, 2021
Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST.
There is a growing body of research that links sound to human health. The role of acoustic design in healthcare facilities is crucial in creating health, comfort and privacy. Join moderators Patricia DeMuyt and Andrew Schmidt of the USG Architectural & Building Science Teams as they moderate an expert panel of designers, architects, planners and consultants in a discussion on the future of healthcare, acoustics, and architecture.
What acoustic challenges and complexities do we need to consider in spaces of healing? What can be done as builders, designers, facility owners and occupants to shape better and healthier environments?
This panel qualifies for 1 LU HSW AIA credit.
