  1. Acoustic design is often neglected in the majority of the built environment.
  2. The simulation of sound diffusion at different frequencies is computationally expensive.


  1. Data collection from complex surface geometry and acoustic response
  2. Categorization of surface geometries
  3. Data driven simulation


Bridging real-world models and data models will have a high impact in architectural acoustics
