This Freedom Day, as people are able to gather once again in large spaces, such as cinemas, galleries, theatres and offices, our host, Simon Gosling asks, ‘Will these cacophonous spaces feel boomy and uncomfortably loud as we emerge from our locked down lives’?
We explore the challenges of designing acoustics for public spaces, with our expert guests, Richard King - Sandy Brown and Martin Rawlins - BASWA acoustic.
