THE SONIC ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN BEHAVIOR

THE EFFECT NOISE MAY HAVE ON INDIVIDUALS, OR WHAT ONE CONSIDERS NOISE IS CERTAINLY A SUBJECTIVE REACTION, BUT IT NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE DESIGN OF ENVIRONMENTS REQUIRING MENTAL CONCENTRATION, WHERE PRIVACY IS PARAMOUNT, OR WHERE PROLONGED EXPOSURE MAY BE AN EMOTIONAL OR BEHAVIORAL PROBLEM FOR THE OCCUPANTS. MASS HOUSING-LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS, OPEN PLAN OFFICES AND COMPRESSED URBAN AREAS ARE SITUATIONS WHERE A CONCERN FOR THE SONIC ENVIRONMENT IS NEEDED. IT IS HOPED THAT THIS BIBLIOGRAPHY MAY PROVIDE SOME ASSISTANCE IN DECIDING ON APPROPRIATE PERFORMANCE CRITERIA FOR THE DESIGN OF THESE SPACES.
