The 2012 Student Design Competition will be displayed and judged at the the ACOUSTICS 2012 HONG KONG meeting. The Student Design Competition is intended to encourage students in the disciplines of architecture, engineering, physics and other curriculums that involve building design and/or acoustics to express their knowledge of architectural acoustics and noise control in the design of a facility in which acoustical considerations are of significant importance.
The competition will be a poster session. Entries may be submitted by individual students or by teams of a maximum of three students. Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to participate. Students must be enrolled in either the Fall term of 2011 or the Spring term of 2012 to be eligible for the competition.
All competition entries will respond to a design scenario. Information about the design scenario and registration for the competition is available on the website of the Newman Fund, www.newmanfund.org.
The Student Design Competition is sponsored by the Technical Committee on Architectural Acoustics, with support from the Wenger Foundation, the Robert Bradford Newman Student Award Fund, and the National Council of Acoustical Consultants.
The submitted designs will be judged by a panel of professional architects and acoustical consultants. An award of USD$1,250 will be made to the submitter(s) of the design judged “ﬁrst honors.” Four awards of USD$700 each will be made to the submitters of four entries judged “commendation.” Entries will be on display in Session 2aAAc on Tuesday, 15 May, at 9:20 a.m. in the Theatre Foyer.
