"Acoustics is something of a stepchild in the world of architecture and interior design. It is given scant attention in architectural schools and often just cursory attention in practice. We know a lot about the science of sound and how to control it, yet we frequently fail to deal with sound rigorously when we create structures and spaces. Acoustic consultants typically are on the scene when we design theaters, concert halls, auditoriums or recording studios, but rarely for other projects."
