Tyler Adams avec Sound Materials: A Compendium of Sound Absorbing Materials for Architecture and Design

Providing architects, designers, acousticians, engineers, students and creative professionals with a visual encyclopedia of sound-absorbing materials, this book is categorised according to application. Each material includes a full-page profile with color photographs and illustrations, reference projects, manufacturer contact details, technical specifications, and sound absorption performance data. Installation photos are presented throughout to showcase these materials in a variety of interior design and architectural contexts and underscore some of the common acoustical and material challenges presented by specific applications, such as healthcare, education, performing arts, office, retail and industrial environments. An introductory chapter concisely explains basic technical concepts outlining how sound-absorbing materials function, why sound absorbing materials are important, how to maximise the performance of absorptive materials, and how to select the best materials according to the application. The reader will gain familiarity with existing and emerging materials, and be inspired to work with sound-absorbing materials in new, innovative.

From the Inside Flap

Sound Materials is a defi nitive resource for architects, designers and creative professionals -- the fi rst publication of its kind to catalogue over 100 sound absorbing materials with full colour images paired with inspiring real-world applications. Fundamental technical concepts are clearly and concisely presented to provide a general understanding of how materials absorb sound and how these materials are commonly used to reduce noise and reverberation, inform our sense of space, and improve communication in everyday environments. This book not only surveys an extensive range of materials past, present and emerging, but also highlights many exciting opportunities for future innovation and collaboration at the intersections of acoustical engineering, materials science, design and architecture. A special chapter is devoted to interviews with leading designers and engineers who work with sound absorbing materials in variety of novel and innovative ways.
