Architectural Design: Acoustics examines the physics and perception of sound, the characteristics of sounds and vibrations in spaces, and their place in the development of holistic design concepts.

The course is intended for students in the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma program in Architecture, or for those international architecture graduates referred by the CACB. It examines both the theoretical and practical aspects of architectural practice in Canada.

The student will become familiar with the various stakeholders involved in the design and construction of buildings (such as builders, authorities having jurisdiction, consultants, owners and clients) and their relationship to the architect. The course includes the current context in which architects practice and the laws and regulations that govern that practice in Canada, but also looks to the future and the position of the architect in society and around the globe.
