From clashing symbols to the whisper of burning incense, sound is essential to the worship experience. This talk will explore how the architectural design of a worship space helps or hinders the way religious programming is experienced. We will discuss how the sonic environment of a worship space affects the acoustics of spoken-word and music. Additionally, we will examine the progression of acoustical design for worship spaces for a variety of religions over the past 30 years. The talk will draw largely from the recent book, Worship Space Acoustics: 3 Decades of Design.
