Architectural Acoustics & Living Architecture in Noise Control and Sound Transmission
In-class Presentation | taught by Maureen Connelly, BCIT
BCIT's Centre of Architectural Ecology focuses its unique industry-responsive research on collaborations in living architecture, acoustics, and building science. To meet the ever-rising demand for housing in Metro Vancouver, municipalities and builders are responding with community densification strategies, but continued research is needed to examine environmental impact and homeowners' comfort – this is where the Centre of Architectural Ecology and its student researchers will provide valuable insights.
This course features BCIT's Dr. Maureen Connelly, who will discuss living architecture and acoustics labs, the current research projects underway, and the latest findings which provide real-world relevance for Metro Vancouver's residential housing industry. From green roofs and living walls, to sound transmission of cavity walls and reducing impact noise on decks and laneway homes, this session will provide an inside look into the current research projects and how their findings could impact the future of housing.
