A seminar focused on the benefits of good acoustics in schools was held in Madrid. It was called “Sound Education – Acoustic design in educational spaces” and was co-hosted by Ecophon and Iberacustica. The speakers were Ricardo Canto Leyton and Ignacio Ordóñez.
Ricardo held two presentations, the first one explaining basic concepts of acoustics, and the other explaining the importance of looking into acoustic qualities such as speech clarity (d50) and sound strength (G) as well as reverberation time. Ignacio went on to present the results from a case study at the COAM insitute of architecture, where acoustical solutions were installed, greatly improving the acoustics in the classrooms.
